Spokane County Fire District 4 has an address signage program to give the highest and fastest emergency response possible to its residents. The purpose of the program is to help the emergency responders to locate the correct address quickly.
In rural settings, sometimes the mailbox may not be located near the property, or the property is on a shared driveway with many other homeowners. Addresses can also be difficult to locate due to limited visibility at night, during rain, fog, or snow conditions.
District 4 have also noticed that sometimes the numbering on the mailbox might be on the opposite side that we may be responding from and or the numbering is unreadable due to size and weathering.
The Spokane County Code of Ordinances (BP-39) requires owners and residents to number their homes.
