The City of Pickering has partnered with the Region of Durham and Farm 911: The Emily Project on a safety initiative to assist first responders in quickly locating rural properties in emergency situations. 

Large properties with multiple entrances in rural settings can pose unique challenges for first responders, and the goal of this project is to create address markers and clear signage to aid in access and response time.

This voluntary safety initiative encourages rural landowners to request a civic address and a sign for their property’s secondary entrance. There is no cost to the landowner to get a second address, or to install the sign.

How to apply

Contact the City Development Department at 905.420.4660 ext. 4617 or to request an address and a sign for your rural property.

Staff will review your request and determine if your property meets the guidelines for an additional municipal address.
