Emergency Trail Marker System

To improve trail safety and emergency access, the City of Plano is implementing a trail marker system that will aid first responders in case of emergency. Emergency response teams will now be able to determine exactly where on a trail they need to respond and how to best access that location. Signs will be posted alongside the trail approximately every 1/3 mile with a unique location identifier to ensure that trail users are always near an emergency marker. A pilot program to test the system’s effectiveness is being implemented along Chisholm Trail. Once the pilot program is evaluated, the system will then be expanded to other Plano trails.
