Sylvester -- A south Georgia county is upgrading its 9-1-1 system to improve emergency response time.

Worth County 9-1-1 workers Kannetha Clem and Tina Ward are using a G-P-S device to map every road in the county.

They'll take a picture of every home and enter it into a new computer mapping system.

They say the community can help by properly marking their mailboxes and houses.

" If they put their numbers, their numerical numbers on their mailboxes at their home in at least 3 inch numbers, that will assist us in mapping their house, getting the correct address, and it will assist our responders to locate them faster," said Kannetha Clem with Worth County E-911

9-1-1 officials say with more than 500 roads in the county, the mapping project will take about a year to finish.
