How will you find my house in an emergency?

a.In an emergency, would the police department, fire department, or ambulance be able in finding your address? Even with all the technology available to us, it does not always help us find where you are. b.To assist emergency responders to find your house more easily, Post your address clearly and prominently at your entrance and on your home. c.Posting your 9-1-1 address at the driveway entrance and on your home will alleviate any confusion as to whether emergency responders have the correct location. Try using something reflective or illuminated so that it can be seen in the evening as well as during the day. d.Do not assume since your mailbox is marked you have posted your address, mailboxes are not always at the entrance of a driveway and usually are not marked clearly on both sides. Always report missing street signs to the Engineering and Mapping Department at (276) 926-6107 these not only help others find your home but are essential to emergency response personnel.
