Too many homes, shops, flats and farms do not have door names or numbers so in an emergency the services waste precious time searching for an address.
You can help by following this advice:
- Make sure your house number or name is visible from the road.
- House numbers should be as big as a car number plate.
- Black on white numbers or white on black are the most clear to read.
- Encourage all your local neighbours and community to follow these instructions.
