E-911, short term problems, big time payoffs

October 17, 2002

BLAKELY- People in Early and Calhoun County are having to get use to some new, rather lengthy addresses. 

They're changes made along with the new Enhanced 9-11 system. It's designed to create a uniform address system based on mileage.

Some people's addresses have gone from 101 to 40001 overnight. As the county passes out new numbers, it's causing some headaches for delivery workers. But the E-911 director says it will benefit everyone in the long run.

"Before we got calls that said turn by this person's house, now we don't have to figure out where they live, just who we need to get out there." Matt Hromalik,E-911 Director, said.

The new addresses now show up automatically in the computer whenever dispatchers answer a call.
