Addressing

Why Is Addressing Important?

BECAUSE  WHEN IT COMES TO EMERGENCY SERVICES EVERY SECOND COUNTS!

 

Your Address is how Emergency Services such as Fire, Ambulance, and Police find you during an emergency !

 

Many people, even those in Public Safety, view Enhanced 9-1-1 as the solution to all emergency response problems. 9-1-1 in and of itself is a great emergency response tool, but without accurate and consistent address information it cannot always be counted on to help speed up emergency response. Of the total parts that comprise the Enhanced 9-1-1 system, addressing can be considered one of the most vital parts.
