One of the first questions a 911 dispatcher asks when you call 9-1-1 is “What is your address?” or “Where are you located?” Based on the location information provided, emergency personnel will respond to that location. Emergency personnel are diligent in trying to get to the emergency as quickly as possible, however, delays may occur if access to the property is restricted or they are unable to find the specific unit or address number. The Apache Junction Police Department wants to remind all residents; if we can’t find you, we can’t help you.
Some things to consider when evaluating your home and business for address visibility:
If improvements in address visibility need to be made, here are a few steps each resident and business owner can take to ensure their address is easily found during the day and at night.
Each resident and business operator should check the front of their home, apartment or business unit to ensure their specific location can be easily found and identified from the street. When someone has an emergency, the last concern should be whether or not emergency personnel can find them. Help the AJPD help you, and ensure your address is clearly marked and visible both day and night.
