Public buildings need address posted in case of emergency

To the Editor:

We go to Rotacrest Hall to play crib every Wednesday evening.

There was an incident recently where a senior needed an ambulance. I called 911 and was asked what the proper street address was. I did not know and when I asked the other 30-plus people in the hall, they were unsure of the address also. I was speaking to a 911 operator who would not dispatch an ambulance until he knew the proper street address. I was on a landline so when I have him the number, he could then get the address of the hall, and the ambulance was dispatched.

I would like to make people aware that if you are in a public place, the proper street address should be posted for all to see, along with the 911 number.
