The primary role of the 9-1-1 address coordinator is to make sure that your physical address matches the states 9-1-1 maps and database. This is important so emergency services can find your location when you call for help. The 9-1-1 address also routes your call to 911 to the appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP) that is associated with the emergency services in your area. All addresses in the Town of Coventry are distance based meaning the number of your address will tell emergency services approximately how far down the road they need to travel to find your location. All addresses must be assigned by the municipal 9-1-1 coordinator. You as a resident or building owner are not able to give your residence or building an address.
