Keep emergency address signs visible

Posted: March 26, 2013 - 4:54pm

The Crow Wing County Land Services Department asks property owners to keep blue E-911 signs clear of snow and debris after the recent large snowfall events.

The E911 emergency system relies upon property owners to maintain signs once installed. Signs must be visible at all times so that emergency vehicles are able to locate properties quickly and efficiently when there is an emergency.

If the sign is damaged or removed, contact the Land Services Department at 218-824-1125 to assist in getting a new sign installed.

E911 address signs or road signs shall not be altered, defaced, removed or moved and must comply with the county sign ordinance requirements. Signs that are not on an approved address post should be relocated and placed on an approved post, which is visible from the primary access road.

For any questions regarding E911 sign maintenance, contact the Land Services Department.
