Questions and Answers

What is the purpose of E911 rural addressing?

The enhanced 911 rural addressing service is designed to improve public safety by saving time in locating 911 incoming emergency calls.  Your new physical address tells the emergency dispatch exactly where you live. This information can than be relayed to the proper responding authority such as the Sheriff, Fire Fighters, Ambulance and State Police.  This enables them to find your residence easily and quickly.

How is the my address determined?

An address is assigned by measuring the distance from the beginning of the road you reside on to the exact location of the drive way leading to your house. For every linear mile leading along the road, 100 addresses are assigned, with odd numbered on the left side and even numbers on the right side. The following are examples:
  • 100 Valley Road would be found 1 mile from the beginning of the road to the drive way on the right side.
  • 401 Sangre de Cristo Highway would be found 4 miles from the beginning of the road to the drive way on the left side.

When will the road sign be installed on the road on which I reside?

Roads signs have already been installed on all roads. If a road sign is missing or vandalized, please report it to us immediately by telephone at (505) 454-1654 or e-mail at addressing@co.sanmiguel.nm.us. Remember that these signs are for public safety and when a sign is vandalized, it jeopardizes everyone.

Are the present rural route addresses going to be used for E911?

Unfortunately rural route addressing does not direct emergency dispatchers and personnel to your home in case of an emergency. This type of addressing points to mailbox locations not to individual homes and often, mailboxes are located on different roads that the resident.
