House Numbers Save Lives

Emergency Services and Police Departments are in agreement…visible house numbers save lives?  House numbers should be clearly visible from the street and well lit at night.  House numbers should not be blocked by trees or bushes and should be either light numbers on a dark background or dark numbers on a light background.  The numbers should be large enough to be seen easily from across the street.   More information on house numbers can be found on this document.
