Encouraging uniformity of signage within the county and township, Susquehanna County recommends use of the 6” x 18” reflective blue sign with its reflective numbers. Selling the 911 signs as a fundraiser, the Clifford Twp. Volunteer Fire Dept. offers them for $15.
Griffin Reynolds is the chairman of the 911 Addressing Sales for the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Department (CTVFD).
“In conjunction with the U.S. Post Office and Clifford Township supervisors, the Susquehanna 911 Center released new addresses for Clifford Township properties a year ago,” he explains. “This release was the result of the federal government forming the Dept. of Homeland Security, designating that all homes and businesses must have a physical address, not just an Rural Route number. This release is really a milestone for the emergency services that protect our lives and properties, as it enhances the ability for services like the fire department to locate them in an emergency.

To order a sign from the CTVFD, call 570-222-3741, or stop by the CTVFD station on Rt. 106 on Mondays, 6-8:30 p.m. If anyone is unsure of their new 911 address, call 1-800-395-6503.

“The signs in Clifford Township have already proven themselves very effective for identification purposes,” Reynolds states.
