911 Address and Mapping
While issuing 911 addresses is not the most exciting thing we do, it is one of the most important. Without an orderly address system, it is very hard for your home or business to be located quickly during an emergency.
Once you verify the 911 address you will need to display the assigned address number, on your home or building, to allow emergency personnel to more easily locate your address day or night. The numbers should be reflective, between 3 and 6 inches in height, on a contrasting reflective background and should be visible from a distance of 50 ft. If your home or business is not visible from the street, please post an additional set of assigned numbers that can be seen from the street.
The mission of the McAlester/Pittsburg County 911 Coordinator’s is to maintain extremely accurate 911 mapping information for use in the 911 Emergency Communications Center. The coordinator’s office will continue to provide the citizens of Pittsburg County with correct addresses, road and street names, and to upgrade the 911 mapping capabilities as often as feasibly possible. We will continue to provide quality service using up-to-date procedures and upgrading to the newest technology as is becomes available.
Plan, develop, schedule, and coordinate all phases of 911 mapping. This includes maintaining several data bases, issuing addresses, assign and/or request approval for street names, GPS mapping private roads and address points, and coordinating data with the United States Postal Service and various utility providers.
The goal of the 911 Coordinator’s office is to provide up-to-date, accurate addressing in order to support daily 911 Emergency Response.
