Access to Your House
-You should know at least two exit routes from your neighborhood in case of emergency evacuation.
-Make sure that any road leading up to your house allows two-way traffic, is not too steep and does not have curves too sharp to accommodate large emergency vehicles.
-Driveways and bridges must be strong enough to carry heavy emergency vehicles, including bulldozers carried on large trucks.
-Make sure dead-end roads and long driveways have turnaround areas that are wide enough for emergency vehicles.
-Your house address and street name should be printed in numbers and letters that are at least four inches tall, on contrasting color background. They should be visible from all directions of travel for at least 150 feet.
-Be sure that your street name and house number are not duplicated elsewhere in the county.
-If your house is set back from your street or road, post your address at the entrance of your driveway.
