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 and then open the door and turn on lights to help confirm the 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.

What else can I do to reduce the response time of the Emergency Services?

  • At home

    • Turn on lights at the front of the house
    • Send someone to the main road to meet the Ambulance (Only if you have enough people to help)
    • Have the number or name of your house on a pier or frontage wall of the premises
    • Place a car with hazard light on the side of the road (if it is safe to do so)
  • At a work site

    • Have the name of your business clearly displayed on the front of the building or frontage wall of the premises
    • Send someone to the main road to meet the Ambulance (Only if you have enough people to help)
    • Place a car with hazard light on the side of the road (if it is safe to do so)
  • Sports field
