American Farmers More Regimented than Brits?

By now I expect most counties have implemented their 911 program, including the assigning of street names and house numbers to farm residences. But in Britain, apparently, they resist the numbering. At least, that's my inference from this BBC story:

A new campaign is urging people in rural Denbighshire to display the names and numbers of their homes properly in order to help the emergency services. When responding to 999 calls officers and paramedics say they are often hampered because many farms and houses do not have names or numbers on them.
