If you observe any person in need of first aid or emergency support please contact your respective chief either by radio/phone or in person or go to the chalet. Let them know where you are, the nature of the emergency, and the bib number of the competitor. From there the Chief will notify the Ski Patrol. If the injured person is blocking a ski trail and are able to safely move off the trail under their own power please ask them to do so. If they cannot move off the trail leave them where they are until the Ski Patrol arrives. Have another person go down the trail and warn oncoming traffic of the situation and ask that they ski slowly by the injured person, but to continue the competition.
