Clear E911 address signs of obscuring brush

As summer continues for a little while longer, homeowners are reminded to make sure their E-911 signs are not obscured by brush.

The reflective, blue and white address signs should be clearly visible to emergency responders, and free from weed overgrowth.

The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office says outside of cities that have their own rules, E-911 blue and white address signs are the best way to ensure the most expedited response.

The old red and white “fire number” signs are no longer in use and should be replaced.
