Location, location, location!
When the fire district responds to a given location, it may be delayed in arriving if the address is not clearly seen from the street.
Although it's fairly easy spot a column of smoke from a house fire, it's difficult to see someone's heart attack from the street. In a medical emergency, firefighters may waste critical time having to knock on several doors to try and find a correct address.
Make sure your address is clearly visible from the street. The numbers should be three or four inches in height and be reflective.
This problem is compounded in large condominium and apartment complexes. Arriving at a correct address, the engine or rescue company finds a huge residential facility with many buildings in the complex. Make sure large identification lettering or numbering is mounted on the side of the building. This is as important as the street address. It would be even better if someone could be standing near the street to direct the fire units to the appropriate apartment.
