LEWISTON – The Lewiston Fire Department and the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council were recently presented with a donation of five-inch reflective 911 house/business numbers by Drillen Hardware, 1086 Sabattus St.

The donation was in response to the “Is Your Number Up?” awareness campaign undertaken earlier this year, which stressed the importance of having visible numbers on properties so that emergency responders may quickly find a location.

Members of the public may stop by the City Administrator’s Office at Lewiston City Hall, 27 Pine St., to pick up donated numbers for as long as they last.

The council also wishes to inform residents that Boy Scout Troop 116 will be willing to post the numbers if a resident is unable to do so. Residents may leave their name and phone number at the City Administrator’s Office when picking up a number.

Troop 116 has become a partner in this effort, as LYAC Member Ryan Reed, who took the lead on the campaign, teamed up with fellow Scouts to distribute neighborhood flyers as part of his Eagle Scout badge.
