Why are accurate addresses important?

If you ever call 911, the operator is trained to verbally confirm and verify the phone number and address for every call received. This is the way a 911 call should work, but if a young child or an out of town visitor is calling they may not know your correct address. For this reason, the E911 system must have the correct assigned physical address associated with your phone number.
