- In 1996, Armstrong County began the long and tedious process of providing a physical 911 address to every building, home, and business in the county. The project was completed in 2008. Today, the 911 addressing coordinator has the responsibility of maintaining the Master Street Address Guide, which when merged with the telephone company's records, provides 911 operators with your address automatically when you call 911.
- When you call 911, it is important that you provide your 911 address, NOT your mailing address. Post Office boxes, Rural Delivery boxes, and other non-specific addresses provide little information to a 911 operator. Without a physical 911 address, we may not be able to locate you.
- Please understand that although 911 works with your borough or township officials to create your address, the final authority to naming roads lies with the municipality you live in.
