Lake Location Markers

Have you ever noticed the large letter signs that can be seen on the lake at several of the beaches and parks around the community? These letter signs are actually Emergency Locations Markers (ELM's) with latitude and longitude coordinates attached to them. The letters go from A to O, and the locations of each letter were coordinated with the assistance of the City of Canyon Lake and the Canyon Lake Fire Station. 

Residents who have an emergency at a park or on the lake can refer to the letter when they call 9-1-1. The letters are stored in the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system so that the location can be determined quickly.
