House Numbering

You can help the Fire and Police Departments locate you quickly during an emergency by having your house and business numbers clearly posted. Use numbers large enough to see easily from the street and paint them a contrasting color from the background on which they are posted.

If your building is more than 50 feet from the street or if the entrance is not visible from the street the number should be placed at a suitable location that is easily discernible from the street.

For more information on house numbering please call the Fire Prevention Bureau at (650) 286-3350 or send e-mail to
