The Municipality of Clare encourages you to display your civic number in case of an emergency needing 911 services. Civic number signs can be ordered from the Southville Fire Department.

Tips on posting your civic number:

  • Civic number hsould be easily seen and read from the road when approaching from either direction;
  • Signs should be within 5 meters (15 feet) of the road;
  • Signs should be at least 1.2 meters (4 feet) above the ground;
  • If house, cottage or building is more than 50 feet from the road or is not easily seen from road, civic number sign should also be placed at the end of driveway so it is clearly visible from roadway.

Sign holder made from sturdy aluminum, easy to install, can be purchased at Joe Bengivenni's shop in Concession: 902-769-7600.
