Reflective address signs keep families safe

The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club is selling 911 reflective address signs.

The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club continues to sell the 911 reflective address signs as a fundraiser that will help keep families safe this holiday.

Every year, hundreds of people spend precious minutes waiting for emergency services because the drivers can’t find their home. When it’s dark out, address numbers may not be visible from the street.

Households that frequently have guests over in the evening can also benefit greatly from installing a reflective address sign. They’ll help food delivery drivers, taxis, and Santa, too!

“I was able to install my reflective sign myself, it was so easy because of the pre-drilled holes, and I now I know a taxi or ambulance can find me easily,” said Mrs. Cotton.

The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club serves the community by distributing grants and bursaries: Vanier Student Bursary, Coal Hills BMX, the Courtenay Recreational Association, Sid Williams Theatre, Child Development Association, CV Therapeutic Riding, Boys and Girls Club, Santa’s Workshop, Senior Peer Counseling, Relay For Life, Comox Valley Hospice, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, Glacier View Lodge, Courtenay Low Income Housing, Salvation Army, CV Community Foundation, Sonshine Lunch Club, Courtenay Museum, Food Bank, Comox Valley Search and Rescue, and other donations within the community.

Reflective address signs also make thoughtful gifts for your family, friends and neighbours. The 911 Reflective Address Signs sell for $40.

To place your order, call 250-338-9602 or visit www.911reflectivesign.ca. Orders are processed quickly and are available the following day for pickup.
