Be found or suffer the consequences

Can first responders find your home day or night? Stunned at the number of rural and city homes that have poor signs or none at all. It has always been pet peeve of mine that some people seem to think that the local emergency services know exactly where they live. They’d probably be the first ones to complain if the police, fire or ambulance was delayed in getting to them.
Those small and/or cool dark numbers may not spoil the look of your building or mailbox – but they are completely useless to a fast-moving emergency vehicle – and just plain stupid for finding your location at night.
Seconds count and having emergency services drive past your location isn’t an option. Get stand out numbers and better still reflective. Take responsibility and have your location clearly marked and stop putting the burden on the first responders.
