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

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.

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

Pike County 9-1-1 staff strives to have an address assigned within ten (10) 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.

Why do I need an 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.

If you are unsure of your correct 9-1-1 address, please contact the Pike County 9-1-1 Business Office at 334-670-6600 between 8 A. M. and 5 P.M. Monday through Friday.
