House Numbers

Massachusetts General Law requires that all homes and businesses have numbers of sufficient size and affixed in such a way as to be visible from the street. A minimum of four inch block numbers are required. Script is no longer permitted. While we’re out to inspect your smoke detectors, we’ll also be looking for those house numbers! We will be unable to grant the smoke detector Certificate of Compliance if the house is not properly marked.


If you have any questions or concerns please call the Agawam Fire Department Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 413-786-0657.
