911 Address Guidelines

The Addressing/GIS Department assists in the safety, health and well-being of all Granville County residents by ensuring emergency response teams can quickly locate your residence and/or property. If an address is not properly marked and visible, there could be a delay in emergency services.

Residents are responsible for making sure their address is reflective and that it is visible from the roadway. If the mailbox is not in front of the residence, there should be at least 4” high reflective numbers on the house or at the driveway.  If mail is not received at the residence and there is no mail receptacle, it is still imperative that the emergency 911 address is on the house or at the driveway with at least 4” high numbers.

The reflective numbers kits can be found at stores such as Lowe’s Home Improvement, Home Depot, and other hardware stores. Click the link below to download the Granville County Addressing Guidelines brochure.
