EMS Outreach of Hudson is offering free reflective mailbox numbers to seniors who are 65+ at the Hudson Safety Center to bring awareness to one of the critical challenges Hudson safety forces face when trying to keep citizens safe. Both the EMS and Fire departments depend upon the numbers on mailboxes to find the correct address where their emergency services are needed. Not having readily visible numbers only delays their response time unnecessarily. In an emergency, any delay has the potential to impact the outcome of a situation. EMS Outreach strongly encourages everyone to make sure they have visible and legible numbers on their mailboxes.
With the assistance of Ace Hardware, EMS Outreach has partnered with Hudson EMS to provide the free mailbox numbers for seniors at the Safety Center, 40 South Oviatt Street. The numbers can be picked up Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Reflective mailbox numbers can also be purchased at ACE Hardware.
