WE CAN’T HELP YOU IF WE CAN’T FIND YOU is the main focus of a new project undertaken by the Greenwood Rural Volunteer Fire Department in Parker County. The department was awarded a grant for $10,000 from FEMA/DHS under the Assistance to Firefighter’s (AFG) Fire Prevention & Safety (FP&S) grant program to supply the residents served by the Greenwood Rural VFD, including the annexed areas between the Ric Williamson Loop and the Weatherford city limits, with new reflective address signs.
Many of our roads have no street lights and many mailboxes are either not visible or are in such distressed condition that finding an address quickly is difficult. Stopping to check and re-check addresses or looking for the correct unmarked driveway is sometimes frustrating and can be time consuming at a time when every second counts.
Greenwood Firefighters have begun canvassing our district to locate unreadable or distressed address markers. We have mailed out information and a form to be filled out and returned if you would be interested in more visible address signage. A resident can also call, email or stop by the Greenwood fire station to get more information and apply for a FREE reflective address sign. We at the Greenwood Rural Volunteer Fire Department look forward to serving you.
