House signs are always important to have for kerb appeal and to help delivery services find you. But house signs are a necessity when emergency services are trying to locate your property in an emergency.
You may, (and I hope that it never happens to you), but you may at some point need the help of an emergency service be it an ambulance, the fire service or the Police. When you contact these services they will first ask what service you require and next they will ask for your address. You can give them your address, but this would be of little use to them if you have no house sign for them to locate you.
Even if it is our standard Etched Slate House Sign
it will still help the brave men and women that serve in the emergency services to find you that little bit quicker, and the quicker they can find you the better.
But to help them even further here are a few tips and options that we offer here at Design A House Sign that may help them find you even quicker.
If you increase the size of your sign it will also increase the size of your house name or number on the sign, this will make it a lot easier to be spotted from afar. The larger the sign the easier it is to see.
Here we are talking about where the sign is situated on your house. If your house sits back from the road it may be an idea to have a Gallows Sign
or Post Mounted Sign situated near the front of your property which again will increase the visibility of the sign and help them locate you a lot quicker.
To make your sign stand out it is a good idea to use bold font with contrasting colours, e.g. Black on white or Vice Versa, and if you go for an Engraved Slate Sign
a white infill would be the most visible to the emergency service teams.
So please do not run the risk, be sure that your sign can easily be seen and nothing is blocking the view of your sign like trees or bushes. Make sure it is in an area that is clearly visible from the roadside.
And please remember it is incredibly important to be seen by the emergency services, they go to incredible lengths to make sure we are all safe and save countless lives every single day. So anything we can do to help them we should do.
