Chief Dino replied to Al "Top" Styles's discussion Sides of a structure in the group Incident Command
"Our area is very rural and most homes are set back from the road a ways and not always facing the road (my house is a little over 500' from the road). For us the front door is always the "A" side and numbers are used for floors."
