If you need us, can we find you?

Many Black Forest homes have no house numbers or numbers that are hard to see, especially in rain, snow, or smoke. If you need to improve your numbers, you can get these simple high-visibility house number signs at Station One.

The numbers are 4 inches tall, reflective, and installed on both sides of the post. They are designed to take an impact of over 60 MPH and bounce back. The cost is $25.00, installed. If you lost your home in the Black Forest Fire, your sign is FREE, and we will install it for you. Order your sign by calling Station One at 495-4300, or stop in to sign up. Payment can be made at the station or arrangements can be made to collect on installment at the home (exact amount please).

These number signs are not required but can help our members find you quickly when minutes matter.
