If you called 911, could emergency personnel
find your home or business quickly?
In an emergency, locating the address as soon as possible is the first step in saving lives and property. Time wasted searching for the proper address is something many 911-callers can’t afford. Proper marking of a home street address is the responsibility of the homeowner, but we, along with our emergency service partners, know that many homes within North Newton Township do not have their address clearly marked.
Your purchase of a Reflective Address Sign will greatly improve the ability of all emergency service providers to quickly and accurately locate those that need help anytime, day or night.
To order a sign for your home or business,
please call the township office at (717) 776-7665.
