One of the biggest problems that emergency first responders have is house numbers. It doesn’t matter if it’s law enforcement, fire, or ems. if your house numbers aren’t clearly posted, we can’t find you. For 20 bucks or less you can put 3 inch to 5 inch numbers on your mail box. (5 inch & both sides recommended). If you get your mail delivered to your door (city folks) your number should be posted clearly on the front of your house facing the street. This is a very simple thing. But it could be the difference in getting help in time. Nobody needs your name or complete mailing address on your box. JUST YOUR NUMBERS. Can you look at your love ones and say you’re not worth 20 bucks?
