The piles of snow everywhere could be creating a safety hazard. And you may not even realize it.

The snow and ice may be hiding your mailbox or reflective address sign. And that could make it difficult for police or firefighters to find your home in an emergency.

That's why the Springfield Township Fire Department has a reminder -- make sure your address is visible. That likely means you'll have to do some clearing around your mailbox or address sign.

Fire Chief Ron Henry also says having your address posted on your house is still a good idea too. And he says everyone can help the fire department by clearing snow and ice from around fire hydrants. That can help speed response time in the event of a serious fire.

And just a reminder too. The green, reflective address signs are always available free of charge for Ontario and Springfield Township residents. So even if your old one has been damaged by a snow plow, you can get a replacement. Just call the fire department at 419-529- 4416.
