Recently a Golf Course maintenance worker who was driving a cart experienced a medical issue causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle.
A resident witnessed this and attempted to call 911. When the dispatch person asked for the house number the resident looked at four homes to identify the location and house numbers were not visible. Finally, one number was spotted and relayed to the 911 dispatcher. The residents, Jay and Karen Mueller stayed with the worker until fire and rescue were on the scene.
However, this story could have had a different ending. Please review the condition of your house numbers to preclude a future incident. Next time it could be you.
Make sure your house numbers are clearly marked and free of shrubs and bushes. Although trucks are equipped with GPS, sometimes the location of the house is still not very clear. It is important to be prepared for all types of situations.
