When plows come to push the snow off of the road, they may be pushing it onto your fire numbers, which can make it difficult for first responders to find their way to your home if necessary. To avoid having first responders waste critical time in an emergency, area fire departments encourage residents to clear those signs. "Google maps isn't always perfect with being right in front of the house, so it's important for us to be able to see the house numbers so that we can actually find the right house to help people," Jessica Quinn, a firefighter and EMT with Riverside Fire District, said. Quinn said clearing your house and fire numbers are just as important as clearing your driveway and sidewalk after it snows, says that the more snow residents clear, the easier it will be for them to help when you're in need.
