Is your house number displayed properly?

Is your House Number Visible and Displayed Correctly????
Think of this scenario, there's an emergency at your house. You dial 911 and speak to the dispatcher. However, it seems like it's taking a long time for help to arrive.
Meanwhile, Fire and police have arrived on your street but they're having problems finding your house.The house doesn't have any easily identifiable numbers on it and the mailbox is blocked by trees

Seconds Count in an Emergency:
• Protect your family and your property by having large visible house numbers.
• Firefighters, police officers, and EMT's find you faster when your home is properly marked.
• A visitor, child or injured person may be unable to give clear
directions.
• Emergency personnel from a neighboring community may
be unfamiliar with your area. Use Large Visible Numbers
• Numbers need to be at least 4-inches in height and facing the street.
• Put the numbers under lighting, and use numbers with a contrasting background, so they will be visible at night.
• If your driveway is long, post your house number on both sides of a mailbox or sign pole at the end of the driveway near the road.
• Be sure to keep numbers visible by trimming trees and bushes.

Thank you!
