HELP US HELP YOU!
Help us help you. Always have your house numbers displayed and visible from the street so we can easily find your home. Most houses, up to about 40 feet from the street, and mail boxes should have atleast numbers 4 inches in height displayed. The furthur your house is from the street the larger the numbers should be. The color of the numbers should contrast from the back ground color. Your numbers should be displayed on your mail box and on your house, especially on driveways with multiple houses. The roadway lighting in Herald Harbor is not the greatest, to say the least, so reflective numbers would help even more. Here are pictures of a not so great display and a good display.
Also, be aware of the water supply in your part of the neighbor hood, fire hydrant, underground tank, designated open water drafting sites, etc. As you know the Harbor is supplied with county water and fire hydrants but a major part of our area is not so lucky. Make sure hydrants, under ground tank connections and the designated open water fire department drafting areas are clear and easily accessable to the fire department vehicles. If you notice an area of concern please notify county public works or your neighborhood community association. If you feel it is of a concern that should be address right a way you can call us directly and also call public works and/or your community association. Don't assume someone else called. What do they say? "the squeeky wheel gets the grease". If you would like to know the locations of water supply sites you can always stop by the firehouse and ask to see them on our map.
