An ambulance or fire truck arriving at a home or business in the fastest time possible saves lives!
An important project is underway that will ensure emergency services can quickly and easily locate your home or business. Martin County light-duty Fire Rescue and Property Appraiser's Office personnel are going door-to-door in unincorporated areas of Martin County confirming address numbers are located on every structure.
Following the field verification of address numbers, property owners will receive a letter with an explanation of any needed changes, based on the addressing code. The following are guidelines to ensure that life safety needs can be met:
* Address numbers must be placed conspicuously on the front of the structure, so the numbers can be seen plainly from the street.
* When the house or building is more than 50 feet from the street line, the address must also be placed near the driveway or a common entrance, on a post or mailbox, so it is easily visible from the street.
Ninety days after the initial letter is sent to the property owner, another inspection of the structure will take place. If the home or business is still not in compliance, a code enforcement violation notice will be issued.
Please help us help you by ensuring that your property numbers are correctly located on your home or business, so we can find you when you need us most! For more information, please call (772) 419-5363.
