The Fraserburgh & District CSG has taken the initiative in encouraging local people to increase the amount and the clarity of house numbers and house names to help the Emergency Services find houses when they are called out on 999 calls. The Emergency Services do have difficulty in finding houses which are not numbered or named. House numbers and house names should be clearly visible from the street or road.
Councillor Brian Topping says:
"If the emergency services or a doctor are called out to a house but have to spend time tracing it because it does not have a door number, it can add seconds or even minutes to their response time and it could cost lives."
