Can We Find You?

In a true emergency, time is always of the essence.  Precious minutes wasted looking for the proper location could mean the death of you or a loved one, or an increased loss of property due to fire or other situation.  To help minimize the risk to you, your loved ones, and your property, your house should be properly numbered.  If the guidelines below are followed, police, fire, and medical services will be able to get to your emergency faster, helping them keep you safe and minimizing any potential loss.

House numbering is an acceptable alternative, but is more difficult for emergency service personnel to identify at night. If numbering the house, use large high contrast numbers, such as in this example.
