An Easily Overlooked Safety Feature Makes a Big Difference for Park Visitors
Forest Park Forever's Director of Planning & Projects Dave Lenczycki recently spoke to Fox 2's Jasmin Huda about an important Park safety feature. The recently installed light pole address markers help Park visitors share their location with authorities even if they're not exactly sure where they are.
As Dave explains in the clip below, “Each one of those signs is coded into a GPS system and you let the dispatch know, ‘Hey I’m in Forest Park I may not know exactly where I am.’ They’ve been trained to say, ‘Look to the nearest light pole.’”
If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation while in Forest Park, remember to call 911 and look for the nearest light pole!
