What is a 9-1-1 address?
A 9-1-1 address is the "physical" address of your structure. When you
dial 9-1-1 from a "land" phone in an emergency, this is the location
information that is available to a dispatcher.
Why do I need a 9-1-1 address?
When a dispatcher receives a 9-1-1 call, they need to be able to locate the
caller. The dispatcher guides emergency responders to the location. In the case
of "land" phones, a 9-1-1 address should be tied to it so that the dispatcher
can see it automatically. This is especially important if the caller is unable
to speak or the 9-1-1 address is not known.
When do I need a 9-1-1 address?
Many types of structures require a 9-1-1 address, including some types of
barns, shops, buildings and garages; businesses; all houses and/or mobile
homes; as well as water and cell towers. When you apply for your building
permit, one of the forms you must submit is the 9-1-1 Address Application.
How do I obtain a 9-1-1 address?
Email the 9-1-1 Address Application along with a plot/site plan showing the location of the driveway to email@example.com.
Why is my 9-1-1 address not Weston if I'm in the City Limits?
Please be aware that your 9-1-1 address is NOT based on municipal boundaries, the USPS assigns
zip codes based on USPS boundaries. Although your residence is located within the city limits of
Weston, you are located within the Celina or McKinney boundary for USPS mail delivery purposes.
