Could We Find You In An Emergency?

Is your street address number displayed on your home or property?  If not, please post your assigned physical street address number right away.

When you dial 9-1-1 from a traditional, or landline, phone in your home, the address and phone number will display on the 9-1-1 telecommunicator’s screen.

Your actual physical address, which includes your house number and street name, is your 9-1-1 address.  You cannot use a route or box number for 9-1-1 purposes.

Your 9-1-1 address should be posted with reflective numbers and visible from the roadway so that emergency responders can easily find you in case of an emergency.




For 9-1-1 purposes, the entry to your drive, lane, easement, access road, etc., should be marked NOT just your mailbox.  Mailboxes help the Post Office deliver mail, but 9-1-1 needs to find you in an emergency!  It is important to mark all entrances and turns along the way to your home.
