Baker County -- People in Baker County need to update your address information with the 911 center.

The county is switching to enhanced 9-1-1, which will automatically display a caller's name and address.

People who live there will get packets so they can make sure 9-1-1 has their correct addresses. They're even sending along self-stamped envelopes so you can mail them back.

"They will get a dispatcher if they dial 9-1-1, but enhanced 9-1-1 will give them a more in depth on the address. It will show up on a screen. It's just more technology to where it will place the EMT's to the right spot," said Baker County Manager Evelyn Philips.

If all the people living in Baker County get their updated information sent in, they expect the enhanced 9-1-1 service to be up and running in six months.
