Residents urged to update address display

PARIS — Oxford County Regional Communications Center and emergency personnel are asking property owners to properly post and display their address on buildings and mailboxes.

The 911 emergency equipment is up to date, but the use of cellphones, voice over internet protocol, known as VoIP, and other devices sometimes don’t give precise caller and location information.

Residents should remove their old numbers from buildings and their mailbox before placing the new ones. The address number should be on both sides of the mailbox.
