Viewpoint: Street Number Laws

Even though it's required by local law, there are many homes in Albany that still don't have street numbers properly displayed on the home or mailbox.

While this may not seem like a big deal, ask anyone whose life has depended on the arrival on an ambulance.

Are you willing to risk they're not being able to find you? It costs next to nothing to buy reflective numbers and can truly mean the difference in life and death.

We urge all of you, not just in Albany, but in all of South Georgia, to do your part in helping emergency workers quickly locate you in the event of an emergency.

And if you really want to play it safe, display the numbers on your mailbox AND your house.

This is a 5 minute fix that can save your life.
