Brookfield Fire and Emergency Services sells and installs civic number signs for residential and commercial properties, and if the address is within the BFES protection district we will install it for you. Civic number signs (a double sided, reflective blue field with reflective white digits) can be ordered by calling the regular BF&ES business line (673-2965) and leaving a message including your road/street name and number and phone number and name. Alternately you can send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org If you don’t know your official civic number leave your name and phone number or email and we will contact you to determine the proper information.
Signs come attached to a plastic post which we will install once the sign is ready. If you wish to install your own civic number sign, the province has some guidelines that we would encourage you to follow. For example, in rural areas signs should be double sided, reflective, and located to be easily visible from the public roadway. It is our practice to place signs near the driveway but displaced far enough that they will not be damaged by snow removal equipment or hidden by piled snow. It is also prudent to ensure that brush and shrubs are trimmed back so that they do not obscure the sign. For details, the EMONS web site is: http://emo.gov.ns.ca/content/civic-addressing
