If you have an emergency at your home, could the police or firefighters quickly find you? Emergency workers often have a difficult time finding a home because the address numbers are not legible.
House numbers can also be obscured by trees or other objects. This can delay fire, police or ambulance services from finding your home. Those few seconds could mean the difference between life and death.
Emergency personnel memorize street locations or use city maps to find a block, but they look for address numbers to find specific homes.
In Roseville address numbers must be on the home (on a mailbox is not adequate), must be at least four inches high and clearly visible and legible from the street.
Please take time to make sure your house number is clearly visible in case of an emergency.
