(Neb.)-Visible Addresses Requested For Rural Dawes County Residents
(Chadron)-The Chadron Police Department is asking people in Dawes County if they are building a residence or any building in rural Dawes County outside of the city limits of Chadron or Crawford that may require them to establish a 911 rural address, to please contact the 911 Communications Center at the Chadron Police Department for an address application so an address can be established for the property.
Applications can take anywhere between one to three business days to process, and may be picked up at the Chadron Police Department at 125 Main St in Chadron or may be emailed or faxed to applicants if requested. To request an application, by fax or email, people can call the Police Department at 308-432-0510 or email 911 Director Tony Serbousek at email@example.com. If someone lives within the city limits of Chadron or Crawford and need an address established, they are asked to please contact the local city hall.
In conjunction with the Chadron and Crawford Volunteer Fire Departments, citizens who live in rural Dawes County are asked if possible to place a sign at the end of their driveways with their address on it. This will aid the fire departments in responding quickly to residences requesting a rescue or fire unit. An address sign can simply be a piece of plywood or other similar material attached to either a small steel post or fence line with the address clearly marked on it.
If there is a mailbox at the end of a driveway, the address can be attached to it. Residents in rural Dawes County are not required to do this, but it certainly would help local volunteer fire departments in responding to the correct address or location during times of emergency. If anyone has any questions, they are encouraged to contact Serbousek.
