Trail Marker System Efforts Continue

Correction: The story originally read that the Mohawk Fire Department assisted with Off Road rescues, it in fact the Ahmeek Fire Department.

*****************************************************************************

With snowfall right around the corner, efforts to mark the hundreds of miles of trails in Keweenaw County continues. The gofundme.com campaign has a goal of $7,500, and the emergency trail marker project is just over halfway there. Right now the page shows the group, headed by Joe Schneller, has received 4,676 dollars in donations. The goal of adding trail markers throughout the snowmobile and ATV trails is to help emergency responders to locate and assist individuals quicker than they are currently able too. In Keweenaw County the Ahmeek Fire Department assists primarily with off road rescues, but addition of markers along the trails will go a long way in their effort to get to the scene faster. And assist an individual by making locating them much easier.

If you would like to make a donation to the gofundme campaign details can be found below. Or if you feel more comfortable making the donation for the trail marker system to the Keweenaw County Sheriff, details for getting your donation there are as follows.
