911 Address Signs

PLEASE HELP US TO HELP YOU!!!!!!

By now you have probably seen the reflective 911 home address signs on many of your neighbor's mailbox posts.

Made of the same tough materials as road signs these home address signs are so reflective in the dark that members of the Petersburg Fire Department don't have to struggle to read your address at night.

If you are interested please contact 911 coordinator John Balster at 217-632-5460 to purchase these signs.
