Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Service offers reflective address signs. These 6″ by 18″ signs can be installed on top of mailboxes, on sign posts, fences or trees to make it much easier and faster for emergency responders and others to find your home.
Each double-sided sign is only $20.00. And we can mail your sign to you for an additional $5.00 to cover postage and handling costs.
Signs are available for either horizontal or vertical installation. They are pre-drilled, so all you need are appropriate screws–two “L” brackets are included with each sign. If you haven’t got a mail box by the road, you can install a post at the end of your driveway or in your front yard to mount the sign, use a fence or even a tree. Private road residents can stack the signs at the entrance to their road, then place a house sign or another post-mounted sign at their cottage or residence.
Installation within 4′ of the ground (like the 3rd picture shown above – far right), is never advised. Snowbanks will hide the sign & probably damage or destroy it every year.
We highly recommend mounting the sign as close the road as possible to provide easy visibility in both directions at night, or in rain, snow or foggy conditions. Your reflective address sign reflects light like a beacon!
