Why post 911 Addressing
When lives and property are at stake, every second counts. Properly posted address numbers can be a vital link to your safety. A missing, incorrect or poorly marked address can delay emergency response when seconds can literally mean the difference between life and death. In the interest of public safety, Putnam County has passed a Uniform Addressing Ordinance, number 2006- 17. This ordinance requires that all homes and businesses display a visible correct street address. Address must be affixed to the front of the building or to a separate structure such as a post, wall or fence, so they are clearly visible from the roadway.
