The problem with putting up more trail signs is people taking them down, which I think has been an issue in the past. Regular trail users would rather keep the environment 'natural'. If there's a way around that, it's a great idea.
In recent interviews, NSR hasn't raised the time/energy spent on rescues as an issue, it's the funding. While more education re: the outdoors could eventually decrease calls, their immediate problem is funding.
