Time can be critical in an emergency and responding fire and police personnel must be able to find your address quickly before they can help you. Northlake City Ordinance states that you must have numbers (not words) that have to be at least 2 l/2 inches tall. However, the police and fire strongly urge larger numbers (four to six inches) to make visibility greater. Numbers in cursive are especially difficult to read at night or during stormy weather.
