The procedure for obtaining a 911 address requires the 911 coordinator to go out to the location and take a GPS reading and then refer to the GIS map to determine what the address will be. Citizens are asked to contact the E911 office as early as possible to give ample time to do the field work. It is very important to post your 911 address at the end of your driveway to be visible by emergency personnel.
Once a new 9-1-1 address has been assigned this office will send notifications to the property owner.
911 Addressing Administration Office is charged with the assignment of 911 address for new structures or mobile homes for Ashley County Rural and cities.
