Help make Lake Hopatcong safer, order your dock number today!
The B-SAFE Dock Numbering Program was developed with the aim of improving emergency response times and safety on Lake Hopatcong. Since the program’s inception, more than 700 lakefront homeowners (37 percent) have participated, enhancing the safety on Lake Hopatcong.
Each lakefront property has been assigned a unique dock number, or “lake address,” which is linked to its 9-1-1 street address. Lakefront property owners may voluntarily purchase and post a B-SAFE dock number sign where it can be easily seen from the water. If an emergency occurs, an accurate location can be reported using the nearest dock number as a reference point.
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 to your dock, boathouse, post, or tree where it is clearly visible from the water.
It’s not too late to be part of this important safety initiative
You can purchase your B-SAFE Dock Sign for $29 – which covers the cost of printing the sign as well as shipping and handling. Order your sign by June 15 to ensure delivery by mid-July 2019.
