The GIS Mapping Office is responsible for the NG911 addresses in Montgomery County. We work in cooperation with the State of Kansas NG911 services and local emergency services. An accurate NG911 address ensures that emergency services will arrive timely and safely.
The NG911 address is based on the location of the driveway and the location of the building. For this reason, vacant lots are not addressed. If you are planning to build, please have a site plan available to assist us in locating the building.
We also work with NG911 to perform an annual review of current addresses, by sector, and update addresses as needed. We understand that an address change can be a challenging process and we strive to make it as smooth as possible.
How do I get a 911 address for my property?
Properties located outside city limits.
If your property is outside the city limits, the first step is to establish your driveway and site plan. Please follow the steps below:
- In order to provide a 911 address, there needs to be a clear driveway (from the county road to the edge of the parcel). If there isn’t a driveway, you may contact Public Works for more information. The contact information is available on the form. If your parcel needs a waste system, the Environmental services office is also listed on the form.
- Once the Mapping office has the driveway or culvert location information, we calculate the mapped location for the residence or building. Using the driveway, the center of the road, and the location of the residence or building, a NG911 address is calculated.
- The Mapping office will update the state NG911 system with the exact location of the driveway and building.
- Keep in mind that we are not able to update GPS Mapping apps or other services. Both the postal service and the state update Google, Apple Maps, Syngic, and other online mapping services on a quarterly basis. It may take up to a year or more for GPS to show your new address.
