Seen the New Emergency Markers Posted on Chisholm Trail?

PARD Emergency Marker

Your life may depend on the new information signs recently added to paths along Chisholm Trail. Plano is conducting a “test run” of an emergency marker system to help first responders find patrons quicker when they are on a trail.

Telling a 9-1-1 dispatcher precisely where you are in an “open space” (with no set address) is problematic – especially when seconds count. The markers pinpoint your exact location during an emergency in public open spaces.

These signs are visibly placed every 1/3 of a mile along the Chisholm Trail for this pilot program. The numbers and letters on the markers indicate the name of the park for the call-taker, as well as which block you’re in and the direction you’re headed. Read more in the Trail Marker FAQs and see a Map of the test site.

Watch this video to learn more about the City’s newest safety measure to enhance your park experience.
