"Our Mission: We, the El Dorado Hills Fire Department, exist to serve and protect the Community through emergency management."

Address Visibility

Below is a list of some of the El Dorado Hills Fire Department Protection Standards:

  • The address numbers shall be of a size of not less than four inches in height on a contrasting color background and shall be clearly visible from the address roadway.
  • The address numbers shall be permanently posted at each driveway entrance and shall be visible from both directions of travel along the road.
  • The address numbers may be mounted on the home only if the distance from the road to the home does not exceed 100 feet and all the other requirements are met.


Your address must be clearly visible on the curb, mailbox, sign, or home and meet the requirements above.  Check to make sure your address is not hidden with overgrowth or illegible due to faded paint.  Don’t take the chance that safety personnel cannot find you in an emergency!


Please keep your family safe by complying with the standards above.  Thank you for your cooperation in making El Dorado Hills a safer place to live.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Fire Prevention Specialist Marshal Cox at (916) 933-6623.
