Addressing

Questions about how addressing is done, posting an address, obtaining an address, etc.

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.

How long does it take to receive a 9-1-1 address?

Talladega County 9-1-1 staff strives to have an address assigned within three (3) to five (5) business days from receiving the request. However due to several factors such as address discrepancies, private drive naming or staffing levels that goal is not always met.

Can I pick my own 9-1-1 address number?

No. There is a system in place to allow your location to have a specific address. The specific address is unique and provides information on how far from the beginning of the road and what side of the road your structure is located.
