First Aid and CPR Recertification Refresher this Thursday - March 13th

March 10, 2014 by overland

Unfortunately, we did not have the minimum number of registrants needed to hold the class, so it has been cancelled. If you are a member who needs the refresher, please sign up for the Tuesday, April 8, 2014 class using the same link below.

If you need to refresh your first aid and CPR certifications, we are holding our first recertification class this Thursday, March 13th from 6:30-10:00pm at the Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church, 4501 S. Lemay.  This class is open to all members, but we encourage patrollers who need recertification (you know who you are!) to take this opportunity to recertified before the riding season really gets rolling.  The trails will be dry soon, so be ready to patrol when they are.  There is a limit of 18 spots available and you can sign up here.

Bitten: What to do if a rattlesnake bites

June 10, 2012 by bikekor

The weather heats. The snakes come out. Sometimes they bite and we all know, that ain't good.

Here's a little guide to help if it does happen. 

The best advice? Don't let it happen. Stay alert when you're on the trail.

That being said, if you encounter someone who has been bitten or you are bitten by a rattlesnake bite, follow these rules:

Rule #1: Call 911 (If your phone doesn't work, go immediately to Rule #2)


Rule #3: Monitor the patient's AIRWAY, BREATHING, & CIRCULATION but don't forget the goal of Rule #2.

Rule #4: Remove jewelry, watches or tight clothing. The bite will cause the area to swell dramatically and make circulation difficult.
