State verifying Keene addresses for emergency services maps

KEENE — The state Division of Emergency Services and Communications is working in Keene to collect road and addressing information, said Police Chief Kenneth Meola.

The work enables the Division to provide exact location information to dispatch agencies should an emergency arise, according to a news release.

The process involves going to each structure in the town and collecting the actual X,Y coordinates, all posted addresses, and any new roads not currently in the police department’s data. If addresses are not clearly posted, the division may need to verify resident or utility information. Should the need for this arise there would be a clearly marked state vehicle. All employees have ID’s and carry information cards with the bureau contact information.
After the collection process is complete, the division will work closely with Keene officials to ensure that the information gathered is complete and accurate. Upon acceptance by Keene officials, paper and digital maps will be generated for the city.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to the E 9-1-1 Mapping Department at 527-2069.
