News Release
Rural addresses will be easier for first responders to find thanks to SDAO grant (Photo) - 10/19/21

Thanks to a generous matching grant from the Special District's Association of Oregon, rural addresses in the Sweet Home Fire District will be easier for responders to locate.  The program awarded funds to the fire district in the spring, allowing the district to hire two student interns over the summer months.  These interns worked to improve the visibility of existing address markers and to install or replace non-existent or missing  markers.  These address posts and markers have historically been provided by the fire district at no cost to the landowners.  They allow first responders to locate addresses from the roadway during an emergency.  With increasing demands for services, the fire district has struggled to ensure that the maintenance of the rural addressing program was up-to-date.  The grant allowed us to get caught up, and to create a database for the program which will assist us in ensuring that the program runs more smoothly going forward.
