911 Signs

Along the Chippewa Snow Chaser Trails you will see small rectangular signs with two letters and four numbers on them. The two letters in our area are “FS”.  In other areas you may see different letters such as “FR”, “GS”, “KL” or “LL”.

If you have an accident on the trail and need emergency help, the first thing the responders need to know, is exactly where the victim is located. Send someone in your party in each direction to find the nearest sign. You should encounter a sign on the trail within one mile in either direction.

Memorize the two letters and 4 numbers and give them to the 911 operator. These small signs, if used as locators, will tell the 911 operator exactly where the victim is located in the forest and the first responders will be able to get there quickly.

Be sure to give the letters and numbers exactly as they appear on the nearest sign!  Reversing a couple of numbers could send the first responders miles from where they are actually needed!
