Rural Address Signs

Help Us Find You

May contain: text

Do you live on a rural road and down a long driveway? If so, it may be difficult for Emergency Services to find you. The Arcata Fire District has obtained grants from the California Fire Foundation and Pacific Gas & Electric Company to supply rural residents with FREE easily identifiable reflective address signs..

You may have seen the green address placards along county roads around the District. The Arcata Fire District wants to ensure as many homes as possible have this type of address sign, well displayed and visible. Also, as necessary, the Fire District may add color accents to signs to indicate a rural water supply or driveways that are long, narrow, or difficult for fire apparatus turn-around.  This will assist us in determining the emergency response to those residents and minimize any delays.

Arcata Fire District rural area residents needing an address placard can have them supplied and installed at no expense.  Fire District representatives will be visiting with residents in the listed areas to determine interest in the program.  If you wish to have a sign, please complete this form and we will be in contact with you.
