It is imperative that your house and mailbox are largely and clearly marked, especially at night.
If your home or street is mismarked on dispatch maps, emergency responders may not be able to find you.
With our rapid growth, responders need the most accurate information possible.
9-1-1 services all over the state of north dakota are on a mission to create a seamless map so that first responders all over the state will have uniform maps.
Four employees of GeoComm will be driving four small SUV's around Ward, Bottineau, Renville, Oliver, Mercer, and McClean counties, similar to this one.
If they need to contact a property owner who isn't present, they will leave a yellow pamphlet for the owner to respond to.
(Larry Haug, Ward County 911 Coordinator) "And their vehicles are clearly marked as GeoComm Vehicles, and the workers all have credentials with them. They will not be making contact with every person or resident in Ward County. They may drive up to the house to look at the house number, but they are primarily doing kind of a drive by each area; verifying that the addresses that are on the map are reflected correctly."
The GeoComm team will be traveling around Northwest North Dakota through the end of the month.
