Rural Addressing

The primary objective of the Rural Addressing System in Lacombe County is to help emergency response agencies, such as police, fire and ambulance, find your home quickly. Lacombe County is pursuing this objective by providing a rural address for every developed parcel of land in the County, and by ensuring that each parcel is posted with a rural address sign.
