Improved Signage Needed For 911 Calls

First responders in Pike County say the safety of those they serve is at risk because of a failure to maintain proper signage for 911 addresses.Robert Kendrick, Greasy Creek Volunteer Fire Department chief, said there are many homes in the Greasy Creek area that are hard to find.”Which costs us a lot of time in the long run if it’s a life-threatening situation,” Kendrick said. “If we can’t find the address, it costs us five minutes looking for it.”He said there has not been a deadly issue because of the problem, but worries one will happen if it isn’t fixed.
