In Kawartha Zone, our non-skiing event program operates year round, offering first-response medical support for a wide cross-section of sporting events including cycling, mountain biking, speed skating, beach volleyball, and running events from local 5K runs to trail runs, to international marathons.
Our support of these events assists the fundraising efforts of charitable organizations such as:
- Heart & Stroke Foundation
- Terry Fox Foundation
- Princess Margaret Foundation to fight Prostate Cancer
- Camp Oochigeas For Children With Cancer
- Sick Kids Foundation
- Easter Seals Ontario
- Canadian Cancer Society and many more.
Our services are rewarded with a donation to the Canadian Ski Patrol, Kawartha Zone.
As outdoor sports enthusiasts, CSP patrollers are self-sufficient, excel in teamwork and prompt communications, and thrive in extreme weather conditions. All are trained to be mobile, are well versed in treating athletic injuries, and fully capable of being the first response for any medical illness or trauma. In particular, our patrollers are adept at diagnosing a situation and solving it quickly with the appropriate (and available) tools before dispatching to medical aid.
Over the years, our team has also developed relationships and experience working in tandem with other volunteers, event organizers, lifeguards and medical professionals such as police, fire and local Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
We will adapt our services to individual event requirements by coordinating the entire medical team, or filling in the gaps on bike or foot. In short, we provide the tools, expertise, equipment, people and know-how.
