Over 25 years ago, Edgefield County adopted E-911 to enhance the capability of emergency responders to quickly locate emergencies. As part of this adoption process, the county had to readdress properties.
Over the last few years, advances in technology have led to the development of the next generation of 911, also known as NG911. As NG911 systems are put into place in South Carolina, the State is going to a more uniformed EsiNet System for E-911. This change will help responders have even better location data, which will allow them to respond to emergency situations even more efficiently. As we move towards this system, it is more important than ever to ensure that E-911 addresses are accurate. In order to improve accuracy, Edgefield County is currently working to readdress areas where inaccuracies have been identified.
Property owners whose property is affected will be notified in writing when their address will change.
The E-911 office will coordinate these changes with the United States Postal Service which will continue to deliver mail to the previous address for one (1) year from the date of the notification. Property owners will not need to submit a change of address form to the United States Postal Service but will need to notify their correspondents of the change within one (1) year.
