Leadership group helping Palmer's residents

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Protecting your home and family is a numbers game, according to one group of young business leaders in Hattiesburg. Members of Leadership Pine Belt want to make sure that address numbers can be clearly seen in a time of emergency on the homes of Palmer's Crossing residents.

So today, they put new, large numbers on dozens of homes. It's part of a community outreach project called, "Safety in Numbers."

Group members say between 150 and 200 homes will have the new address numbers attached.
