As described in understanding mapping, part of our process to map an alert is to decide in which city or town the alert is located. This is because we have to geolocate your alert, which means converting your alert address into latitude and longitude coordinates. If your dispatch specifies a city name, we don't have to guess. Otherwise, we will usually try using your county name or the name of the city in which you are located.
