Know Your Location

9-1-1 Needs to Know Where You Are!

Know your Location!  When dialing 9-1-1 it is important to know this piece of information more than anything else.  No matter what is occurring, without a location we cannot send you help.  There is a lot of technology in place to assist 9-1-1 centers in locating you; however, in a situation where seconds can save lives, having your location readily available can be the difference between seconds and minutes.

The following can help 9-1-1 Call Takers determine your location:

  • Full address of location
  • Cross streets or intersections
  • Address number on a building or structure
  • Names of landmarks, businesses, complexes, etc.
  • Address of nearby location (across the street, next door, etc.)
