Every second counts during a fire, police, or medical emergency
Valuable time can be lost if your house number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it. This means Police, Fire & EMS responders cannot provide lifesaving services to you and your family if they cannot find your house.
The Emergency Management Agency recommends the use of standard issue reflective address markers. These signs provide a consistent , easily read address for our emergency responders and could save lives by saving time in helping to identify an incident location.
"Do I really need one of those signs?"
Ask yourself...Can your house be found easily by a passing car? Can it be found quickly in an emergency? How about at night? Or from a distance? When seconds count?
Try this...drive or walk up and down your street. Put yourself in the position of a rescuer that's responding to your house in a life-or-death situation. Can your house number be seen clearly & easily from the street...and especially at night? Or in bad weather? (Remember, YOU may know where you placed your numbers, but an emergency responder probably does not).
