B-SAFE (Blue Signs Are for Emergencies) dock number signs are once again available to order for 2018.
By Holly Odgers | LHF: The B-SAFE Dock Numbering Program was developed with the aimof improving emergency response times and 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 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 650 lakefront homeowners who participated in the program in its first two years. It’s not too late to be part of this important safety initiative. You can purchase your B-SAFE Dock Sign HERE for $27 – which covers the cost of printing the sign as well as shipping and handling.

** Please note that B-SAFE dock number signs are ordered in batches in order to keep the cost down and it may be several months before your sign is produced and mailed to you.
