Update Your House Description!
Please help us update our database to ensure responders can quickly locate you if an emergency arises. Often citizens change the color of their house, make additions, or even move and fail to inform 9-1-1 that they have done so. This can cause problems for law enforcement, fire, and EMS who may be (for instance) looking for a blue house only to find the house has been painted white. In an emergency situation, those seconds matter and that's why we need accurate house and building descriptions. Click here to update your house description; we will not share your information with anyone other than those responding to an emergency.
