This is Cinda Seamon, Public Education Officer for the Town of Hilton Head Island Fire and Rescue.
Imagine what could happen if you or a loved one is having an emergency but emergency crews can't find your home because your address is not posted properly.
Being able to identify the address of a residence is a crucial part of an emergency response.
Address numbers should be posted so they are visible from the road or on a placard in the yard. Numbers must be at least 4 inches high and have a different color background so they can be seen.
If your number is not currently posted,Â please take the time to do this small task ~ In an emergency it could save your life.
