Jefferson Township Fire Department Local 3029 is selling reflective house number signs.
The signs are green with white numbers on both sides. The reflective material makes them visible at night, which aids the fire department in locating addresses when called out on a run.
“It helps us help people, said Brad Haynes, Local 3029 president. He said the most common place residents place the signs is on their mailbox support post.
The signs are $14 each. Anyone interested in purchasing a sign can stop by the fire house anytime, 745 W. Main St. Using a template, fire fighters can affix the numbers to the sign on the spot, or the purchaser can do it themselves.
This is the first time the fire union has sold the signs. Haynes said the union plans to make it an ongoing project. A portion of the proceeds will go to charity.
For more information, call the fire house at (614) 879-8265.
