Can Emergency Responders Find You?

Would Emergency Responders
Be Able to Find You?

 

    Every second counts during an emergency. Your house number may not seem to be an important part of your outdoor landscaping efforts but you shouldn't disregard this important detail. Valuable time could be lost if your address number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it.

    If your house number is difficult to see when you drive by in the daytime, imagine how difficult it would be at night. Dark numbers, numbers that have faded or fallen off, plants or foliage cornering the number, or having numbers on only one side could contribute to a delay in locating the site of an emergency.

    Large numbers that are prominently displayed and are visible from the road will speed a response during an emergency. Please assess the visibility of your address and ensure that you can be located by responders. Consider reflective numbers that are visible from both directions of the roadway. Remember, we can't help you if we can't find you!
