CHINOOK - Imagine if your spouse or child became severely sick or painfully injured, you heard an elderly neighbor yelling for help, or you just witnessed a serious car accident in front of your home.
In such instances, a person's first reaction is to call 911 for assistance. Now imagine after making the call, the police officer or the ambulance crew is late - not because they are unreliable, but because they cannot find the address you gave them. If you're lucky, they may pass by the location and you can flag them down. But what if you live on a very long road and many folks are not familiar with the order of the house numbers?
