Install Reflective Numbers

In 2019 we had a fire risk assessment performed by Battalion Chief Jonathan Black, and he identified that we could greatly help our first responders by installing reflective house numbers that are easily visible.  Santa Clara County Fire requests that residents use four inch (4”) Black or Blue numbers on a White Reflective background posted at the roadside.
