A Reminder To Clean Your Civic Address Off For First Responders

Posted on Saturday, February 28, 2015 08:57 AM

In an emergency, every second counts, and that's why Southeast RCMP are asking all home and business owners to ensure their civic address numbers are cleaned off and visible.

This is so first responders in vehicles can easily see numbers in the event of an emergency.

Shediac RCMP says earlier this week when responding to a call of a person in distress they had difficult finding the residence as many of the numbers were covered by snow.

Sergeant Paul Ouellette of Southeast District RCMP says it's extremely important that emergency services are able to locate an address as soon as possible when dispatched to emergency situations.
