Post 911 at Phone
Have the 911 number posted next to or on all telephones.
Display House Number
Make sure your house number is displayed so that emergency equipment can find your home. In an emergency, every second counts. Numbers should be displayed so that they do not blend into the house. Dark on light or light on dark works well. If you live off the roadway and/or have no mailbox, place a sign at the end of your driveway displaying your address information.
Know Nearest Intersections
Know the nearest intersecting street to your address. This will help the operator provide directions to your location in case of duplicate street names.
Post Important Information
Post a card with your address, family name and telephone number next to the telephone to assist children and visitors in providing that information in an emergency.
