Why do I need a 9-1-1 address?

Addresses are assigned to provide a uniform numbering system for public safety. An address that can be tied to a specific location will better enable emergency personnel to locate you faster when needed. A faster response time can make a significant difference in survival and degree of recovery. 9-1-1 addresses are also required for phone service, building permits, drivers’ license renewal, land titles, loans, mail delivery, insurance, establish power service and for other purposes requiring a site location. Your new address will also make it easier for delivery services and others to find your address.

If you are unsure of your correct 9-1-1 address, please contact the Talladega County 9-1-1 Business Office at 256-761-9119 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday.
