CAN THE POLICE, AMBULANCE OR FIRE DEPARTMENT LOCATE YOU IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY?
You have called for emergency services, but they may not be able to find you. It may be because your Physical 911 Address is not clearly posted.
It is required that your Physical 911 Address be clearly posted so that Police, Fire and Ambulance Services can quickly and efficiently locate you and your home, because in the event of an emergency every second counts.
Below are guidelines for posting your 911 Physical Address.
If you have questions or do not know your Physical 911 Address contact the St Francois County Addressing Clerk at 573-431-7842.

HOW TO POST YOUR PHYSICAL 911 ADDRESS
1.Your Physical 911 Address must be posted on your home, facing street side, with large 3 inch reflective numbers that are visible from the street, especially at night.
2.If your home is a distance from the road, 50 or more feet, then you must post a sign at the beginning of your driveway, street side, with the physical address posted in 3 inch reflective numbers. The numbers posted must be free from obstructions and be legible even in deep snow.
3.Your Physical 911 Address must also be on both sides of your mailbox.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


☆What is a 911 Address?
It is the physical address where you live.


☆Why do I need a physical 911 Address?
For emergencies such as fire, ambulance, and police.
For older residences and buildings your Mailing Address may differ from your Physical 911 Address. In the case of a newly constructed building or home your Mailing Address and 911 Address may be, in most cases, one and the same.
Any structure that is occupied, even weekend homes, must have a Physical 911 Address posted. This is for emergencies, whether you’re there or not, it may be for a medical emergency or incident occurring on the street in front of your home, for the protection of your property possibly due to a prowler spotted or a fire located at or near your home. Emergency responders look for the 911 address to quicken their response time. Every second counts!


☆How do I get my 911 address?
If you need a new address for a new structure, call the 911 Addressing Clerk's office and have the lot information and also have the most accurate information on streets and the location of your driveway. It is also helpful to have your nearest neighbor’s address and possibly their name. Even if you’re out of state, with good information on your lot location the 911 Addressing Clerk can usually assist you over the phone.
If you’re moving into a house that already has an address, and even though you believe that you know what the address is, you need to call the 911 Addressing Clerk's office to make sure that your information is current.


☆How can I be sure that my physical 911 address is correct?
Often times Postal and Physical 911 Addresses differ in rural areas due to the fact that the 911 mapping system came much later than the U. S. Postal Service with it's rural routes. Call the 911 Addressing Clerk's office to ensure that you have the correct Physical 911 Address in order to have that correct information displayed on your home, mailbox or driveway marker. It is important to contact them to ensure that 911 dispatchers have the correct information in case of an emergency.
