SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is reminding the public to make sure their house number is visible at all times, because the simple task can shave seconds or even minutes off of law enforcement response time.
"Your address number should be clearly viewable from the street free from obstructions," the Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post Sunday. "Numbers placed in a lighted area on your home and reflective numbers on mailboxes are ideal."
They said the visibility of the numerals can affect response times in the event of emergencies, especially in rural or unlit areas of the county.
The reflective numbers can be purchased at any hardware store.
