Help Emergency Services Find your Home!
In an emergency, can local police, fire or emergency medical teams find you house?
The answer is YES!… if your address is clearly marked, and you address marker is located at your property access road or drive way unobstructed from view.
WHAT COULD MAKE IT EASIER TO FIND YOU?
UNIFORM ADDRESS MARKERS
Statistics say that every American family will experience three fires in their life time. Will your address clearly identify your location when you need the fire department?
Still not sure if this is what you need to convince you? Here’s a rule of thumb about average government services, and some of the limits based on the citizens they serve:
- There is 1 Police officer on duty for every 2,500 people
- 1 Fire Fighter on duty for every 4,500 people
- 1 Emergency Medical Specialist on duty for each 6,000 people
- 1 911 operator for each 20,000 people they serve
Is your emergency important enough to make sure these responders can find your house in a reasonable time?
