Snowmobile Safety Education Class
December 27th and 28th marked the successful completion of the 2018 Snowmobile Safety Class. 58 students attended the classes that were held at the United Church of Christ in St. Germain. Many thanks to our DNR Certified Instructors: Ozzie Ausloos, Ron Rhodes, Peggy Ausloos, Trent Keenlance, Dierdre Strass, Steve Stritzel and Vilas County Deputy Will Krueger. Also helping out was DNR Warden Mike Sealander.
Special thanks to Paul Bohnen of Paul’s Rent All for the use of the 3 demo snowmobiles, Jim Wendt for bringing the Groomer over to show the students and teach them the safe way to meet or pass a groomer. Thank you to Chuck and Judy Berard and Don and Marie Baumann who cooked and served the lunch on Thursday. Also a huge thank you to all of people who brought yummy treats for the students (and instructors!). Last but never least, thank you to all the volunteers who assisted with the registration, class, outside supervision and test correction. Without all of you we would never be able to handle this many students in such an efficient way.
When is a safety class required?
Beginning January 1, 2001, any person born on or after January 1, 1985 and who has reached the age of 12, must have completed and received a snowmobile safety certificate in order to operate a snowmobile in Wisconsin. The certificate must be carried while operating the snowmobile, and displayed to a law enforcement officer upon demand. All students are required to obtain a Wisconsin DNR Customer ID# as part of the criteria to graduate from any Recreational Safety Class and provide that number to their instructor. Students can obtain a DNR Customer ID# from St. Germain Sport Marine during business hours or by calling 1-888-936-7463 between 7 AM and 10 PM. You can also visit a Wisconsin DNR Service Center during their regular scheduled hours. For DNR Service Center hours and locations go to dnr.wi.gov and click on the "Contact US" tab.
