911 Addressing

All 911 addressing for Marshall County outside of the cities must be given by the GIS department. You cannot just make up a number – Emergency Services will not be able to find you! For all addresses within the city limits, contact your local City Hall.

New Building Sites
To assign a 911 address, the location of the driveway and where it meets the road needs to be decided. You must be certain of your decision. The address is assigned based on this information, so moving this driveway may change the address. Once the location has been chosen, our office will need to visit the location in order to obtain the latitude and longitude coordinates to send to the GIS department for your address.

Please give up to a month for your property to be addressed. It may not take that long but sometimes complications arise. If the naming of a new road is required, please give a minimum of two months.

You are responsible for making sure that your house or property is labeled properly for Emergency Services.

Addressing a 2nd building at that location
A 2nd address may be required for the following reasons:

  • 2nd dwelling (house or mobile home) is added to the same property.
  • a phone line is added to another structure (the phone company requires an address for each structure with a phone line).

As with these, along with the new building site – please allow a month for these structures to be addressed.
