It cannot be emphasized enough: place readily visible numbers on your house so that we can find you in the event of an emergency--if you rent out a cottage it is imperative that the renter know the street and house number they are calling from-post the info at the entrance/exit as well as by the phone. We have had problems (as recently as last week with a fire call) when an emergency occurs and people don't know where they are on the Island. "Near the water" does not help at all.
