Importance of House Numbers During an Emergency House numbers are not only convenient for finding addresses but necessary for emergency responders to locate those in need. Minutes matter so be sure that fire, ambulance, and police personnel can quickly find your address. It is important to have the correct address number visible on your house , as well as your mailbox. Do your part to help yourself and have your house numbers displayed near the front door, under a light in a size and color that is easily visible from the street. If you live in a rural area maintain your house number sign that is near your driveway. Don’t let it get covered with snow this winter. If the numbers on your house are not visible or easy to read, it will take emergency personnel longer to reach you. Those extra minutes spent trying to locate a property can mean the difference between life and death, so take the time now to be sure your house numbers may be seen from the street.
