Fire Territory Tips

The Town of Argos has a tireless group of dedicated fire and ambulance workers. We have compiled this list of tips below to help us better serve the community we love and protect.

Street Addresses

Please make sure the address number on your home or rental are clearly marked and visible from the street. Address numbers need to be at least 3 inches in height.

Narrow Streets

Argos has many narrow streets making it difficult for emergency vehicles to maneuver easily. Our zoning ordinance requires that each residence have two off-street parking spaces. These parking spaces must be paved or stoned. We ask that you avoid parking on these narrow streets whenever possible so that our emergency services can reach their destination quickly and safely.

Smoke Detector Batteries

Please remember to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors every six months. Change the batteries when you change the time in the spring and fall.
