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 has a unique, easily readable number that 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 to allow faster response times.
