When can I obtain a 911 Address?

A physical address can be applied for as soon as the driveway has been established , a driveway permit has been obtained from the appropriate agency and you have applied for a building permit.

Why do I need a 911 Address?

In order to properly locate where a 911 call originates a structure must have an address. If you do not have a correct address it would be very difficult to locate your residence or business in an emergency.

Where should I post my 911 Address?

Your address should be posted at your driveway, visible from both directions of travel. It is preferable that the numbers be at least 3 inches tall and reflective to ensure they are visible at night to be visible from the road for emergency responders.  This saves time locating your home in the event of an emergency and in an emergency every second counts.

How is the address assigned?

In order to assign a new address, we take a measurement from the beginning of the road to your driveway to determine your new address.  Even numbers are assigned to one side of the road, odd numbers to the other.
