Your number just might be up… If your address number isn’t! If we can’t find you, we can’t help you. Very often the address we’re responding to is not visible. Addresses covered by paint and shrubbery are hard to see. Night and weather conditions may affect their visibility too. Many addresses are not even up. This extends the time it takes for us to bring help to you – when seconds are critical!
Make sure your address is easily visible from the street. if you live on the water ways make sure your address is visible from the back and front of your home. East Contra Costa fire protection district responders thank you in advance for making sure your numbers are up. For more information please visit our web site at WWW.ECCFPD.ORG.
