911 Rural Addressing
At one time or another, each of us will find ourselves in an emergency situation, either as someone needing help, or someone who must call for help. Brazeau County Emergency Services covers an area of over 3,000 square kilometers. When emergency situations exist ... every minute counts.
Here's how it works:
General Rules & Guidelines
System is ACCESS based
Numbers increase going North and West
Odd numbers are on the South and East of roads
Even numbers are on the North and West of roads
There are 32 addresses per mile broken down to 16 on each side of a Range or Township Road one address for each 100 meters of road
At the entrance to each subdivision is a large map indicating the Rural Addressing lot numbers
If two accesses fall within the same 100-metre zone, they will both receive letter designations (i.e. 48012A - Rge Rd 72 and 48012B - Rge Rd 72). Each house will have a letter sign in their yard indicating if they are house A, B, or C.
This system is not for mailing purposes, but for the provision of 911 - Emergency Services only.
