Wasi Ski Club Emergency Protocol

In the event of an injury on the trails or at the chalet, call 911.

The Club’s civic address is 907 Lake Nosbonsing Road, Astorville

The nearest pay phone is at Perron’s Freshmart in Astorville. Cell phone service is
available on many sections of the trails and around the chalet. (At this time, Bell service
is more reliable than Rogers.)

Explain the situation to the 911 operator, describing as accurately as possible the
location of the injured person (e. g. “on the Green trail, just past the turn off to the
Purple trail”). If possible, have someone meet emergency personnel at the chalet to
further explain the situation. The trail map inside the chalet can be used to help
pinpoint the injured person and determine the quickest route to the site.

If possible someone should stay with the injured person and ensure he or she remains
as warm as possible. Blankets and a first aid kit are available in the chalet, in the bottom
right cupboard.

The Club has a defibrillator located in the chalet above the sign-in sheet.
Wasi Ski Club has a rescue basket, snowmobiles, and stretcher to which local emergency
personnel have permission and access.

Please also notify one of our Club’s emergency contacts listed below. These are
volunteers and are not always available, but if they can, they will go to the Club to assist.

  • Steve Hart or Kerry Somerville – 705-752-4215
  • Gilles Lefebvre – 705-752-1289
  • Jennifer Brown – 705-752-1123

Please allow the emergency personnel to perform their duties and assist them as per
their requests.
