Why do I need an E-911 address?

Primarily, to assist emergency services in responding to emergency calls. An E-911 address helps emergency responders to locate residents. A faster response time can make a significant difference in survival and degree of recovery. However, E-911 location addresses are also often required for phone service, building permits, driver license renewals, land titles, loans, mail delivery, utility services, insurance companies and for other purposes requiring a site location.
