The signs appearing at the end of rural driveways in the RM of Fisher are the new numbering for dwellings and other structures. These numbers are assigned in accordance with the Provincial guidelines for addressing and are tied to the new road naming scheme.
The numbering for structures is based on two factors: i) the “block” of the road segment (e.g. Between Road 144N and Road 145N is Block 144), and ii) the distance that the driveway is located along that road segment. A rural address comprises a number and a road name, just the same as in any community (e.g. 123 Main Street). The road name and community must be stated to complete the civic number posted at the end of your property.
In the case of an emergency dial 911 and give the operator your civic number (located on the blue sign at the end of your driveway), road number (the road number the approach is accessed off of) and the municipality or community you are located in. Example 12345, Road 148N, RM of Fisher.
Urban areas within the RM of Fisher have blue civic signs with house numbers located at the end of the driveway. In this case the operator would require a full address such as 123 Tache Street, Fisher Branch, Manitoba.
Please ensure all members of your family know your full address. We recommend posting “your” address in your home near the phone for quick reference. The RM of Fisher will be supplying fridge magnets so that you can post this address for quick easy reference. We will be happy to assist you in completing the information for the magnets.
