If you don’t yet have a B-SAFE (Blue Signs Are For Emergencies) Dock Number, now’s your chance to get yours by July!
These attractive, weatherproof aluminum signs are blue with white reflective numbers. They do not contain any personal information and can be mounted to your dock, boathouse, post, or tree. B-SAFE dock numbers are designed to help emergency personnel efficiently respond by land or water. Your posted number can also provide an easy way for friends to locate your dock.
Order by June 1 for delivery on or about July 1.
Each lakefront property has been assigned a unique dock number, or “lake address,” which is linked to the 9-1-1 street address. Lakefront property owners may voluntarily purchase and post a B-SAFE dock number 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.
