Location is the single most important piece of information that emergency response personnel need to know. Unfortunately, responders usually don’t have this information available to them, and responses are not as quick as they could be as a result.

Windows are great points of access and egress during emergencies, but without proper marking, they cannot be used effectively during emergency situations. Security experts around the country recommend posting numbers in windows to indicate which window belongs to each room.

This accelerates egress and operations overall.
