Visible Numerical Address / Is Your Number Up

If you have an emergency in your home or business, we can’t help you if we can’t find you. When you call the Santa Barbara County Fire Department to request assistance, a vital piece of information is your address.


It is important that you have your address visible so that emergency vehicles responding to your aid will be able to reach the scene in a timely manner.

Numerical addresses for each building should be at least 3 inches in height, contrasting color, and readily visible from the roadway. It is also helpful if the numbers are reflective so they’re visible at night.

By posting your home or business numbers you will be helping the Santa Barbara County Fire Department help you without unnecessary delays. If you need more information regarding the placement of your address, please contact the Santa Barbara County Fire Department at 805 681-5500.
