Statement from 9-1-1 Coordinator

9-1-1 is the three digit telephone number designated as the "Universal Emergency Number" for public use throughout the United States to request emergency assistance. The concept of a nationwide telephone number was first used in Great Brittan almost 50 years ago when code 9-9-9 was established nationwide. In the United States the 9-1-1 concept was introduced in the late 1960's.

 

The Town of Warren in cooperation with the local emergency response personnel; which include Warren Volunteer Fire Department, Waitsfield, and Moretown Volunteer Fire Departments, Mad River Valley Ambulance Service, and Vermont State Police assigns Enhanced 9-1-1 numbers to all residences and businesses in the Towns. This numbering called "locatable addressing" derives from the 1997 passage of Statute 30 VSA that required a statewide Enhanced 9-1-1 emergency calling system. Enhanced 9-1-1 is a system that selectively routes calls to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for a specified telephone service area. With the E-9-1-1 system, call takers are automatically provided with the caller's phone number, locatable address, information pertaining to the fire, emergency medical assistance providers, and police for that caller's location.  The key to a successful E-9-1-1 system is for emergency callers to have a unique locatable address. Locating a residence or business in our rural setting is more difficult that in suburban area's but no less important.

 

From March 2003 to January 16, 2004 Warren assigned 50 new locatable activated addresses and 2 temporary numbers. Additionally, 6 new roads were created and named. During the process of maintaining the E-9-1-1 system in Warren it has become apparent that emergency assistance could become hampered do to the lack of posting assigned numbers and the removal of road signs.

 

To make if possible for E-9-1-1 emergency serviced providers to promptly locate the scene of an emergency the address must be visible . Posting your number helps emergency providers help you get the fast accurate service you deserve. Put your house number on the front of the structure at the main entrance. If the structure is set back from the main road, use your mail box or a solid post in the ground at the end of the driveway. If the drive serves more than one house, each structure must have its number displayed. Use reflective numbers that are at least 4 inches high and placed in a location that can be seen when approaching. If you see that your road sign has been stolen or destroyed please notify me immediately.
Should you need your number, please call 496-2709 ext 24 during regular business hours and then PLEASE POST IT .
