Navajo Nation Enhanced 9-1-1
and Rural Addressing Initiative
The primary goal of the Enhanced 9-1-1 Adding Process is to link each Telephone number to a permanent unique address that clearly identified where a caller is physically located. This requires the creation of a physical address for any property that currently has a telephone, might have one installed, or might be occupied by someone using a wireless phone.
The most important reason for creating physical addresses is to enhance the effective and rapid location of properties by public safety personnel, including law enforcement, fire, rescue, and emergency medical services personnel in the rural areas of the Navajo Nation. The addressing Standard is further designed to eliminate duplicate or phonetically similar street names, to provide for the uniform signage marking streets and roadways, and to provide for the assignment of numbers for all properties and addressable structures throughout the Navajo Nation.
