Plan Ahead:
Make sure your house number or house name are clearly visible from the road. Take some time to map and write out precise directions to your property. Stick the directions to the cover of your phone book, notice board or phone pad and don't forget to tell the rest of your family what you have done and why it was done. Remember the last time you had to give directions over the phone to anyone, well try giving directions in an emergency when you're under pressure, shocked, or injured.  So you see it makes sense to plan ahead.
Remember !
The Emergency Services are there to help you. So don't fool around making "Bogus Calls"
