Lake Addressing Program

Do you live on one of our lakes in West Pierce? The Lake Addressing Program allows anyone, even non-resident boaters, to identify a location on the water or shoreline during an emergency by simply telling the 9-1-1 dispatcher the number located on the nearest dock. This allows for a fast and efficient emergency response to a known location, saving valuable time when it is needed most.

Please visit our Lake Addressing page for more information and how to ensure your dock is appropriately assigned.

Safe Sitter Babysitting

The Safe Sitter babysitting class is designed to teach students ages 11-13 how to be safe when caring for younger children. Even if they are not babysitting outside the home, the skills they will learn in this course are very informative and useful. Students will learn how to run babysitting as a business, childcare skills, CPR and choking rescue, as well as basic first aid.
