Explain the Importance of Displaying Your Address
All buildings in Unity Township are required to have their address clearly marked for emergency responders. The re-addressing project has made it easier for emergency responders to locate homes and businesses throughout the county. The old rural route and box numbers didn’t provide enough information and caused many delays and confusion in emergency responses over the years. Our UPS delivery driver Don is happy each time he delivers us the address marker supplies we order as well. He too has had so much trouble over the years trying to locate homes and businesses with the old rural route addresses. The address markers make it easier for him to get deliveries to their proper destination quickly.
We need you to take the next step in making it as easy as possible for us to find your home or business. The reflective markers are very easy for emergency responders to see during the nighttime and our department has already had several calls where the building was found very easily because of the reflective address signs. In addition to your address number, please be sure if you live on a private lane that was named during the addressing project that your lane name is marked as well. This is important to help us find you quickly and it is also a Unity Township ordinance that your building number be properly displayed. If you are still not convinced, take a ride at night along Route 130 through Pleasant Unity and Lycippus where we have had a great response to this program and see for yourself how easily the signs can be seen and the buildings located.
REMEMBER - "If We Can't Find You -- We Can't Help You!"
Pleasant Unity VFD is making and selling the green address marker number signs to be placed in front of your home or business and the lane name signs can be ordered by calling the Unity Township Municipal Building. The address number signs are 6 inches X 18 inches with white reflective numerals on both sides and are easily installed with two simple screws or nails. Your address number should be placed in front of your home to mark your building. If your mailbox is located across the street or somewhere other than directly in front of your house or driveway, you should install the address sign along the roadway on a separate post or other object where it clearly marks your house or driveway only. Buildings that have long driveways and sit far off the main road should be marked at the end of your driveway along the road of your address. Many people have also placed a second address marker at the house itself.
Anyone can order their address marker from PUVFD by sending your name, address, telephone number and check for $15.00 made payable to PUVFD for each sign ordered. Please indicate whether you want the numbers placed vertically or horizontal. Orders can be mailed to: PUVFD, 135 John George Street, PO Box 197, Pleasant Unity, PA 15676.
Please click on the "file library" tab to print an order form or order forms are also available at Country Café & Video, Gaut-Bacha Funeral Home or the fire station all in Pleasant Unity. If you have questions, please email email@example.com
