The department is responsible for assigning and verifying addresses to all occupied property in Bamberg County. This information is maintained in a local database that is updated frequently. In addition, the department is also responsible for creation and maintenance of Bamberg County street signs.


Some Important things to remember:

  • An E-911 address is required if you are requesting a power permit, building permit, manufactured home permit / moving permit or installing a septic system.
  • Addresses are assigned based on the location of the driveway. If the property is being developed, you must know the location of the driveway before an address can be given.
  • If you are moving to an existing structure and the property will be vacant, please notify the E-911 Office so that we may keep the database accurate and up-to-date.
