Free Lake Tapps Incident Locators Available

The Lake Tapps Incident Locator Program, first launched in 2014 by East Pierce
Fire and Rescue, continues to be an effective way to ensure that public safety help gets where
it’s needed when time counts by placing identification numbers on lake front properties.

East Pierce Fire and Rescue recognized the need for identifying properties from the lake side to
help callers involved in or witnessing an incident on Lake Tapps quickly and accurately give 911
dispatchers a correct location for emergency response. The agency completed the numbering
of all lake front properties at that time and asked homeowners to purchase the incident locator
signs. A recent review indicated the need for the program still exists.

Incident locator signs are made of aluminum for low maintenance and with reflective numbers
for highest visibility. Each sign comes with all necessary mounting hardware. Homeowners are
encouraged to acquire a lake side incident locator sign for posting on their docks, boat houses
or other highly visible location so boaters, swimmers and emergency responders can easily spot
the location.
