Dewey, Ziebach among last to adopt 911 addressing

By Karen Holzer
 
It is happening. A resident has lived at and received mail at RR 2, Box 98, and suddenly, without moving, he finds himself at 12812 303rd Ave. Rural mail customers in Dewey County may have received mail at a Rural Route or Highway Contract Route address for decades. Now they will be required to use physical locations designated by 911 addressing. Recently, residents in Dewey County have received notification of their physical addresses which will be used for emergency dispatch by fire departments, ambulances, and law enforcement. The US Postal Service, along with UPS, FedEx and other delivery services, will be using those addresses to deliver mail and packages.
