Properly I.D. homes for help in emergency
Whether it’s firefighters, emergency medical technicians, mail carriers or even long-lost relatives visiting for the holidays, having a home properly identified will pay dividends. Should an emergency occur, it could mean the difference between life and death.
Too many homes and businesses in Northeast Oregon lack such identification. In an emergency, response time of firefighters, emergency vehicles and personnel could be hampered. When every second counts, such as in cases of heart attack and stroke, seizure, electrocution, choking or poisoning, lives could be lost — all over something as simple as properly identifying a home with numbers.
