FIRE NUMBER SIGNS, aka ADDRESS SIGNS
With the extremely heavy snowfall that we’ve had this winter, many fire number signs have been knocked down or are partially, if not completely, covered with snow.
It’s important that you keep your fire number sign visible for emergency First Responders — Ambulance, Fire and Police. Emergency personnel must be able to locate your home, and the only locator they have to work with is your fire number sign.
Please be sure to remove all snow that may be blocking the line-of-sight of your fire sign, just as you keep the area around your mailbox cleaned out so that you can receive mail service from the post office.
Please spread the word about this problem to your neighbors and friends. We need to get the word out about this so that everyone will remain safe. Thank you!

This is from an article in the Burnett County Sentinel dated February 12, 2014:
UNCLAIMED PROPERTY FROM BURGLARIES GOES BACK TO THIEF
According to state statute, if no one claims property which was stolen during the commission of a burglary, the crook gets it back. That was the jaw-dropping news from Sheriff Dean Roland during the county’s public safety meeting last week. Committee members thought if the property owner didn’t want their property back, maybe the insurance company would get it in order to resell it to recoup some of the money the company paid on the claim. If nothing else, they were thinking the sheriff’s department would get it and the item could be sold at a sheriff’s auction. But no, it goes to the crook. . . In fact, the sheriff said there is a 40-foot by 60-foot storage unit “stuffed” with recovered evidence.
If you’ve been the unfortunate victim of a burglary, remember that your items may be waiting for you to identify and pick them up!
