Village of Crivitz Residents ~
Does your house have a number on it?
Run outside and check right now!
Police, Rescue and Fire emergency workers need to be able to see your house number to find you and if it’s not there, or if it’s obstructed by shrubs or anything else you could be delaying their response. We are very certain you don’t want to do that!
The Village of Crivitz actually requires all buildings to display black-on-white block-style numbers not less than 3-1/2″ high by 2-1/2″ wide. This is referred to as ‘uniform house numbering’, which is important to provide responders with a quick and easy view from the street and avoids difficulty finding addresses due to inconsistent number styles. It is also very important to display your apartment number on your actual apartment door.
Although GPS systems are used by most emergency responders, they can and do fail. Your physical house number will never fail.
Feel free to purchase and install your own house numbers using the parameters above, or contact the Village Hall at (715) 854-2030 for a free set of house numbers. Either way you choose, do it today!
