Addresses of Distinction is based in Cobb County, Georgia and our local fire department does a charming series of videos called '3rdAlarm' on their YouTube channel and in one of the episodes they made an excellent point! It seems one of the biggest challenges emergency crews face when responding to calls for help is finding the address. In this video, they stress the importance of having your mailbox properly numbered on both sides and it stands to reason that easy to read, well maintained street signs would help out too. Check out the video for more tips on helping emergency crews find your house. You can skip ahead to around 5:30 unless you need to learn about bike safety from a puppet.
