Ski patrol opposes licensing rule
The Idaho Emergency Medical Services bureau will make a presentation on a proposed law to require all ski patrollers in Idaho to be licensed by it during a public meeting at Ketchum City Hall on Wednesday, June 2, at 7 p.m.
The National Ski Patrol has expressed opposition to the proposed bill. According to the ski patrol, it could lead to a drastic decrease in the 1,000 Outdoor Emergency Care-trained patrollers, who would be faced with having to undergo EMS licensing procedures.
"OEC-trained patrollers have a history of providing exemplary first aid service on ski slopes in Idaho and throughout the country," said National Ski Patrol Executive Director Tim White. "This is a classic case of creating state regulation where it is not needed."
The proposed legislation will be considered by the state Legislature in its 2011 session.

Executive Director Scott Boettger said in a news release: "Spaulding's primary responsibilities will be the management of the day-to-day operations of the Land Trust and the Building Materials Thrift Store in support of our mission; but he will also work on improving communications and the implementation of present and future projects which protect and preserve wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities and family farms in the region."
