What if I need a new 911 address?

If you are building a home in Cherokee County, you will be issued a 9-1-1 address when you receive your building permit. If you are using a contractor, make sure to ask him for your address when he obtains your permit. It is your responsibility to notify 911 addressing if any information changes including your address, telephone number or ownership.


If this information is not current in our system, this could delay response to your emergency by a few seconds or minutes. When you are having an emergency, seconds count.
