  1. Importance of Addressing

In 1988, Maine voters approved the statewide deployment of Enhanced 9-1-1 service. This improved emergency communication system automatically displays the address of a caller at an emergency call answering center.  If a caller is hysterical, becomes unconscious, or hangs up, the answering center will know where to send help.  This is also true if the caller does not speak English or is unfamiliar with their location, such as an out-of-state visitor, or even a resident, might be.
