Your Address, Cell Phones and 911

By | 09/30/2016

Cavalier County is addressed according to the Modified Burkle Address rules. What this means, is that the roads running north and south are Avenues, the roads running east and west are Streets. If you live on the north or west side, your address will end in an odd number, on the east or south, an even number. The street numbers begin at 78th St. and get larger as you go north and the avenues start at 77th Ave (Countyline Rd). and get larger as you go east to 126th Ave (Border).

Your address should coincide with where you live in the mile, miles have been divided into 1/100th intervals, so if you are on the east side of 98th Ave, as an example between 80th St. & 81st St.,  1/2 mile up the road, your address should be 8050-98th Ave NE.

If you notice that you are not addressed properly, please feel free to call my office at any time.

This applies to homes in the rural areas, cities and towns have their own addressing rules.

If you are in doubt about your address please contact this office at 256-3911

AND AS ALWAYS PLEASE REMEMBER:

When calling 911 from the road, please keep your cellular phone by the window or dash or step just outside of the door.

Satellites need to send a signal to the GPS chip in your phone, only then can 911 dispatchers  capture your location.
