The B-SAFE (Blue Signs Are for Emergencies) Dock Numbering signs are once again available for the spring!
The B-SAFE Dock Numbering Program was developed with the aim of improving emergency response times and safety on Lake Hopatcong.
The attractive, weatherproof aluminum signs measure 8” x 16” and are blue with white reflective numbers. The signs do not contain any personal information. Simply mount your sign using the pre-drilled holes and supplied rust-free screws to your dock, boathouse, post or tree.
We would like to thank the more than 600 lakefront homeowners
(31 percent) who participated in the program in its first year. It’s not too
late to be part of this important safety initiative. You can purchase your B-SAFE Dock Sign HERE for $25 – which includes shipping and handling!
How the Program Works:
- If an emergency occurs on the water, ice or land CALL 9-1-1
- Locate the nearest dock sign and provide the number to the 9-1-1 operator
- Emergency resources will be sent to your location
- Landowners can report a water emergency and the 9-1-1 operator will be able to translate the street address to a water location
- Your posted number will provide an easy way for friends to locate your dock
