WHY A 9-1-1 ADDRESS IS NEEDED

  • LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS, FIRE FIGHTERS, AND MEDICAL EMERGENCY RESPONDERS need to know how to locate YOU in the event of an EMERGENCY! Remember SECONDS COUNT during an EMERGENCY.
  • UTILITY COMPANIES need your address to process an application for service.
  • Post Office must have your physical location address before you can obtain a post office box.
  • Vehicle Tag purchases require a physical location address.
  • ADDRESS CONFIDENTIALITY
  • Your address and telephone number is given only to you and is not provided to any individual or business.

 

POST YOUR ADDRESS

  • During an emergency it is important that your home or business be easy to find. If your house or business number is not clearly visible from the road precious time may be lost looking for you. Post your house number on the front so it can be easily seen by an emergency vehicle driver. In addition if your house is far off the road you may want to post the number on a post at your driveway entrance. Posting the number on both sides of your mail box will be helpful when permitted to do so by your post office or carrier if it is located alone in front of your house. It is not helpful to emergency services if there is more than one mailbox at the same location.
