Since 9-1-1 was established in the United States, everyone has been or is being assigned a physical address for location purposes, in the rural counties as well as within city limits. The process to assign addresses to all Fayette County properties began in the early 1990’s. To eliminate the need to remember two addresses, a mailing address (route & box) and a 9-1-1 physical address, the Postal Service has converted to 9-1-1 addressing for mail delivery as well. The Fayette County 9-1-1 Addressing Office is the sole addressing agent for the unincorporated rural areas and select incorporated areas of Fayette County.
To obtain a 9-1-1 physical address for your property in Fayette County
You may digitally complete the Address Request Application (Adobe Acrobat Reader required) and email the application to email@example.com. You may also print the application, manually complete and mail it to the addressing office for processing. If you choose to apply for your address in person, bringing a completed application with you will be helpful.
You may also call the 9-1-1 Address Office at (979)968-6469 to begin the process of establishing an address. Basic information you will may be asked to provide includes the name of the road by which your property is primarily accessible and the distance from the nearest road intersection to the driveway of your property. Other information that is helpful is a neighboring property owner's name and/or address and the distance between your driveways.
Address Number Signs
Posting the 911 address number is important so that emergency responders can easily locate your property.
Please follow these mounting instructions when posting your address number:
- Sign may be mounted on either side of driveway entrance
- Mounting should be four to five feet high
- Sign should be visible from public roadway
- Make sure no brush, tree limbs, or other items block view of sign
- It is suggested that the sign NOT be mounted on a mailbox as mailboxes are not always located adjacent to the property driveway

Driveway Access for Emergency Vehicles
In addition to having an address number sign posted, planning for access by emergency vehicles improves safety for property owners by providing for a more efficient response by emergency services arriving on the scene. In order to allow for the passage of large fire apparatuses and ambulances, driveways must be clear of low hanging tree limbs and encroaching brush. Driveways and gates need to have an unobstructed vertical clearance of 13 feet 6 inches and a 12 foot drivable surface with a 4 foot clear zone on each side of the driveway (20 foot overall). Emergency vehicles are also very heavy so load limits for any bridges along a driveway need to be posted at both ends of the bridge. In addition, if you subscribe to an alarm service, property access information (gate codes, etc) need to be registered with the alarm service provider.
