Why do you need to Display your house number?
When the Fire Department responds to a given location, they may be delayed in arriving if the address is not clearly seen from the street. Although it's fairly easy to spot a column of smoke from a house fire, it's difficult for firefighters to see someone having a medical emergency, which may waste critical time having to knock on several doors to try and find the correct address. Make sure your address is clearly visible from the street. The numbers should be four(4) inches in height and being reflective always assists at night.
