Natchitoches Parish Communications District
Willis Carter, Director
Natchitoches, LA., March 22, 2016— A critical service of the Natchitoches Parish 9-1-1 District is the assignment of 9-1-1 addresses for all commercial and residential property. The communications district provides this service in all areas of the parish, which are outside the city limits of Natchitoches. Having an accurate and properly displayed 9-1-1 address on your home or business is crucial to receiving prompt service by Fire, Police, and Emergency Medical Services should you or a loved one experience an emergency. Your 9-1-1 address is also critical during times of disaster recovery such as the recent flooding that has affected a wide area of our parish. In addition to being required for Natchitoches Parish building permits, in most cases utility companies such as electric, water, cable, telephone, etc. requires a valid 9-1-1 address to either install new service, or restore existing services, following a disaster.
Applying for a 9-1-1 address is an easy, no cost preventative measure that could save your life, or that of a loved one. Call the Natchitoches Parish 9-1-1 addressing office at 357-8300, or come by 716 Second Street (Arts Center) to apply today. Our normal office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. However, because our staff is required to leave the office to conduct fieldwork, we recommend that you call ahead for an appointment.
We process applications on the same day of your application; however please expect delays as the result of area flooding, and the increased demands associated with restoration of essential services.
