Visible Numerical Address


If you have an emergency in your home or business, we can’t help you if we can’t find you. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department reminds you when you call 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. The numerical addresses for each building should be at least 3 inches in height 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 us help you without unnecessary delays. If you need more information regarding the placement of addresses in your community, contact the Santa Barbara County Fire Department at 805 681-5500
