Snowmobile safety course offered
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is sponsoring a Wisconsin DNR certified snowmobile safety course in conjunction with the New-Tom Sno Fleas Snowmobile Club.
Class will be held Saturday, Dec. 16 and Sunday, Dec. 17, 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., at the club’s groomer barn located at 6777 Badger Rd. in Lake Tomahawk.
Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1985 and is at least 12 years old must have snowmobile safety certification to operate on public areas. There is no maximum age, and parents and adults are encouraged to enroll and participate in this course. Cost for each course is $10 per person.
Students are now required to obtain a DNR customer ID number for any recreational safety class they attend. Please contact the DNR at 1-888-936-7463 to obtain this number before the course begins.
Advanced online registration is required by visiting the Wisconsin DNR Go Wild web site. For more information, contact Sgt. Brad Fogerty at the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, 715-361-5201.
Students with special needs are asked to notify the department when registering and request any special accommodations that may be required.
