House Number Service

The Town of Cheraw is offering residents a service that will allow their house number to be painted on the curb at their driveway to assist emergency personnel in locating houses. There have been several incidents where emergency personnel have had difficulty in finding houses that have no house number displayed or the incident has taken place at night when house numbers are hard to find or read.

As a result of these incidents, the Cheraw Town Council has voted to implement a service that is completely voluntary to its citizens. Residents wanting to have their house number painted on the curb can stop by the Cheraw Town Hall and fill out an application. A $10 fee will need to be paid and the Town will paint the house number on the curb.

For those residents who have no curb, you can obtain a yard house number sign by going to the Cheraw Fire Department and pay a $15 fee.
