Lee County Residents

YOUR COUNTY’S ADDRESSING IS ABOUT TO CHANGE…and this is why!

Lee County is converting to a new

Enhanced 911 System

       

 

If you need help in an emergency situation, we want to make sure that help gets to you as quickly as possible. A new E-911 system will help reduce the time it takes to respond to an emergency situation. To make this possible the rural residents of Lee County will be assigned a new 911 address.

 

Our goal is to help ensure the residents of Lee County live in a healthy and safe environment.  Please look for a more detailed press release in your local news outlets; this will help to answer any questions you may have regarding 911 and your county’s addressing.
