MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — Increasing response time was center stage at Monday’s Madison County Public Safety Committee meeting. The group, which includes a representative of the Madison County Fire Department, wants Madison County residents to voluntarily put up uniform address signs in their front yards. First responders say clear markers for homes could save lives and property. “The reason why we are promoting the installation of address signs — seconds count,” said Madison County Fire Marshal Don Friddle. “Minutes could determine everything in these situations, but seconds are very important.” The county fire department is spearheading this effort and will make and install the signs at a cost of $20 to the property owner. The fee covers the cost of the sign and a donation to the fire station in their community.
