Pinpointing locations beyond the city limit
Many people move to unincorporated areas of Cameron County to get away from it all. In times of crisis, the CCECD 9-1-1 addressing system provides first responders with a reliable way to serve rural callers.
Cameron County Emergency Communication 9-1-1 works closely with the Cameron County Transportation Department and respective cities on the plotting of new subdivisions and residents in the county’s jurisdiction.
Identifying your 9-1-1 address in rural Cameron County
Some subdivisions are preaddressed. If you know your subdivision name, phase, lot and block OR your Cameron Appraisal District property ID, Cameron County Emergency Communication District 9-1-1 will be able to assist you by calling 866.286.8777.
The issuance of an address by the 9-1-1 District does not exempt any property owner from compliance with any municipality or County subdivision regulations.
For help verifying or letters of confirmation of the address, contact Cameron County Emergency Communication District GIS department at 866.286.8777.
