If your home’s address number isn’t visible from the main road (or it’s too small to read), the police and fire department won’t be able to find your house in an emergency! Seconds and minutes can make a huge difference in these dangerous situations, so protect your family by making sure your home is easy to identify!
Can you see your numbers? When it’s light out, go outside and stand beside the main road near your home. Is your address number easy to see from the road? If it is, that’s great! Wait until it’s dark, and then check again (make sure you turn on any exterior lights first). If your address is visible in both situations, mark this to-do as complete!
Clear away offenders. If your address number is large enough, but it’s being obstructed by something like a plant or tree branch, clear the offender. To learn how, read: Prune Bushes and Trim Trees.
