Projects - House Numbering Scheme

Often the Emergency services have difficulty finding exact addresses when called out to rural areas. You and your relatives may know where you live, but if you have a fire or a medical emergency can the Emergency Services find your house? Every second is precious in an emergency and this delay could cost lives.

Magherafelt Community Safety Partnership in conjunction with the Emergency Services and Royal Mail have combined to urge all those living in rural areas to display their number in a prominent position on their houses or lanes that is easily visible from the road.


Remember displaying your number could save your life.
