Recently BeCA received a presentation for the creators of “Safety In Numbers”. “Safety In Numbers” is promoting stick on reflective household numbers.
BeCA provides the following information supplied by “Safety In Numbers” in the interest of promoting improved safety across our estate.
Something as simple as a House Number can make a difference in an Emergency.
Queensland’s Police and Community Safety Minister, Jack Dempsey, said it was important that property numbers were easy to locate.
Ipswich District Crime Prevention Co-coordinator Sergeant Nadine Webster said clear house numbers were important for all Emergency situations, especially at night when personnel are looking for numbers in the dark.
“Whether it be a Fire, Police or Medical Emergency our crews need to be able to effortlessly navigate to the property,” he said.
“Regardless of where you live urban, rural or remote areas, all house numbers should be clearly marked and not impeded by vegetation and identifiable from the road, including Reflective Numbering at the entrance”.
In case of an Emergency Residents should also familiarize themselves with other information which could identify their property, such as:
The nearest cross road
Distance from the road
Other land marks.
