In order to receive a 911 address there must be a permitted dwelling (house, mobile home, recreational vehicle) on the property, or the property must be used for agricultural purposes.  Vacant land is not assigned an address.  To receive your address, simply contact the 911 office at 334-684-6947 or Click Here to fill out a online request.

Why do I need a 911 address? 

Primarily, to assist emergency services in responding to emergency calls. A 911 address helps emergency services to locate residents and business locations. A faster response time can make a significant difference in survival and degree of recovery. However, 911 location addresses are also often required for telephone service, building permits, driver’s license renewal, mail and package delivery to the location, insurance and for other purposes requiring a site location. 

Ensure your telephone service provider has your correct 911 Address! 

People placing emergency calls often have difficulty providing their addresses. Children, visitors, hearing or speech impaired callers, or callers in a life-threatening situation, may not be able to provide address information to dispatchers. Ensuring your telephone company has your correct 911 address is important as that is the information (911 address) that is displayed in the call center. This allows the dispatchers to send the appropriate fire, medical personnel, or law enforcement, even if the caller is unable to communicate. 

Please Post Your Address! 

To assist emergency services, post your 911 numbers at the entrance to your driveway and on the structure. Numbers need to be visible from the road and suggested to be 3” high for residential, 6” high for apartment building, and 10” high for industrial and commercial structures
