Clear directions

In an emergency, you need clear directions. Clear, as in easy to understand, unambiguous, understandable, and possibly even useful.

This box, mounted just short of 10 feet up a wall, declares that either the box itself, or possibly the otherwise vacant wall, is an “Area of rescue assistance.” Not a rescue area, or an emergency assembly area, or an evacuation area, but an “area of rescue assistance.”

Area of rescue assistance area.

Area of rescue assistance? The box itself? The contents of the box? The area around the box? Is assistance limited to people in wheelchairs? Would dialing the toll-free number answer any of these questions? Or is the toll-free number just for inquiries about  the box housing itself?
