House Numbers "Is your number up?"
From the National Fire Safety Council


House number PictureCan we find you in an emergency?        
Clearly posted house numbers can save precious time should an emergency occur.  Response time is critical; seconds lost can mean the difference between life and death.  Approximately 84% of all fatal fires burn 10 or more minutes before the fire department is notified.
