Public Notices

The Village of Magdalena is asking its residents to please assist in a very important part of the emergency response process.  Recently, Magdalena EMS came across an issue where they could not find an address.  The physical house number was not posted on the home where emergency care was needed, and it took longer to respond.  We are asking that you please place your house number visibly on your home.  If you are not able to do this, or until you are able, you can write your house number on a piece of paper or cardboard and place it in a window that is easily visible to the street.  This is for your safety and it will certainly help with response time to any emergency that may occur within your household. 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Mayor, Richard Rumpf
