Rotary Club of Smith Mountain Lake members (from left) Jim Buchanan, Steve Miller and Gary Donninger install a Rotary dock sign on a local dock earlier this month.
Friday, April 26, 2013
The Rotary Club of SML continues to sell and install emergency signs on docks at Smith Mountain Lake. The dock signs provide an address for a homeowner or business, making it easier for visitors and emergency fire and EMS personnel to find a dock or home by water.
It sometimes can be faster for emergency personnel to reach a residence or business by boat than by land. In an emergency, every second counts. Local fire, emergency medical and water safety personnel have encouraged homeowners to install a dock sign with their street address as an additional measure of safety.
The aluminum dock signs are green with white lettering, similar in appearance to local street signs.
Proceeds from the purchase of the signs help the Rotary Club of SML continue its charitable work. Club members will install the signs throughout spring, summer and early fall.
Signs are available for $27 each; installation costs an additional $18.
For those interested in having a dock sign made and/or installed, visit www.smlrotary.com, call Steve Miller at 721-0336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
