Civic Address Signs

The Kennebecasis Valley Firefighters Association sell white civic numbers on aluminum plates with a blue reflective background. Signs come in three different sizes (depending on your street number) and have proven to be a great asset to emergency crews trying to find an address, especially after dark.

Cost: $20 per sign, made at Fire Station (1 Campbell Drive) as you wait.
