Emergency Address Importance

Through the extensive efforts of the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Burlington County Office of Emergency Management, along with dedicated county and municipal officials, emergency service agencies and
community volunteers, Burlington County was the first county in the state to implement an address law that places the primary emphasis on public safety when administering new and refining existing commercial and residential address.

The purpose of the address law is to insure that one uniform address allows locatability in emergencies and provides a reliable means of mail and parcel delivery.

What You Can Do
You can help by understanding that your county and municipal officials realize the inconvenience of changing addresses, but at the same time have a sincere interest in protecting you, your loved ones, and your property.

You can also help by taking the time to properly display your house number. Make sure your property not only complies with existing local ordinances and that your address can be seen from the street under various lighting conditions, during periods of inclement weather, and during all seasons of the year.

We are always happy to discuss any issues and concerns you might have in using 911 and other telephone numbers to contact your emergency services. Speakers may be available for group presentations. If you need additional information, please call 609-267-2275 or write our office at: .

Police Phone Numbers
Burlington County police telephone numbers helps us find you!

911 is a fast, reliable and convenient way to contact police, fire or emergency medical services. The 911 system is designed to display your house number and street and street address to the dispatcher who answers your call. Make sure that your telephone company has listed in their records the name of the town you
actually live in; not your post office. So, after you call 911, how do the
emergency services find you?
  • Is your house number posted on your house?
  • Can your house number be seen from the road? In darkness or bad weather?
  • Are any numbers covered by shrubs or tree? Do they stand out from the background?
  • If you live or work in a complex with multiple buildings: is each building clearly marked? Apartment number? Trailer? Lot number?
  • If your address is on your mailbox, can it be seen? Day or night? Is the mailbox in front of the correct house or apartment?
  • Are the street signs correct for your address? Remember, an emergency vehicle may need to get to your house in a hurry.
  • Can you afford the extra time it might take to locate your house in an emergency?
Post your house number to help emergency personnel find you.
