"We can't help you... if we can't FIND you!"
Every second counts during a fire, police or medical emergency. Valuable time can be
lost if your house number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it.
Police officers, firefighters and EMS responders can't provide lifesaving services to you
and your family if they cannot find your house. The Grantville Volunteer Fire
Company is selling highly-visible sign in order for responders to
locate your residence in a more timely manner, potentially saving time... and lives!
"Do I really need one of these signs?"
Ask yourself... Can your house be found easily by passing cars? Can it be
found quickly in an emergency? How about at night? Or from a distance?
When seconds count?
Try this... drive or walk up and down your street. Put yourself in the
position of a rescuer that's responding to your house in a life-or-death
situation. Can your house number be seen clearly and easily from the
street... and especially at night? (Remember, YOU may know where you
placed your numbers, but an emergency responder will most likely NOT
know!) Rescue personnel will tell you that finding the correct residence is
one of the most difficult parts of responding to an emergency. Wasted
minutes and seconds can mean the difference between life and death.
