Where to display your Know Your Code sign?

  • At home

    • Display it above your front door (inside).
    • At some point, you will have to open your door for the emergency services.
    • When you ring in an emergency go to the front door to read your code.
    • Open the door and turn on lights to help the Ambulance identify your exact location.
  • At your place of work

    • Display it above front door or reception if it’s not at the front door (inside).
    • Also, display at points where staff are most likely to ring the emergency services eg: at canteens, First Aid rooms or Defibrillator locations
  • Community/Sports Centre

    • Display, above the front door.
    • It may also be advisable to display outside where activities take place as people may ring the emergency services from outside.
  • Football Pitches

    • Display at gate entrance or on the outside of changing rooms
    • By displaying at gates people will become familiar with the location of the code.
    • Use Loc8 code where the pitch is not attached to a location which has an ‘Eircode’ (a premise that doesn’t normally receive post)
  • Farms

  • If your buildings are away from the main house display the ‘Loc8 code’ on gates, doors or wall to fields or out-houses.
