Numbers mean safety on Waterfront Trail

EUREKA.,Ca (KIEM)-Efforts are underway to make the Eureka waterfront trail safer.

Hundreds of visible numbered markers have been painted along the Hikshari waterfront trail to help police respond to emergencies sooner.

When on the trail you will see painted yellow numbers every 100 feet. So in the event of requiring emergency assistance, you can tell the dispatcher the nearest reference marker number, this will allow for the first responders to know where the callers exact location, which captain Patrick O’Neill says is just one more way to provide prompt emergency service.
