Emergency Assistance Markers
Nearly 700 markers are affixed to the pavement at 200 to 300 foot intervals along the Pinellas Trail from downtown St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs. Each marker has a unique, easily readable number which trail users can give to a 9-1-1 operator in case of an emergency to identify their exact location along the 47-mile trail, allowing for faster response times.
