Fire prevention grant buys high-visibility address markers


By Madelyn Fairbanks
The Tribune

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — For those who live within Monroe Fire District 3, an eye-catching address marker designed to make it easier for emergency units to find a home where 911 was called from is now available at no cost.

The signs are fluorescent blue with reflective numbering bearing the address, Fire Chief Jamie Silva said. “They really stand out,” Silva said.

The project to clearly mark houses was originally funded by a federal fire prevention grant Fire Marshal Mike Fitzgerald applied for in 2009. The grant money bought the first batch of 200 address markers, which were quickly dispersed to Monroe residents, starting at an October open house.
