Description

In conjunction with an international convention of fire chiefs being held in Toronto, four stamps will be issued on September 23, 1991 to draw public focus on four Canada's Dangerous Public Service Occupations: fire-fighting; police; search and rescue; and the ski patrol. Skiing has been growing in popularity since it was introduced in Canada by Scandinavian immigrants in the 1800's. In 1940 the Canadian Amateur Ski Association asked Dr. Douglas Firth to organize and train a first aid and rescue group to patrol ski hills in the Laurentians, north of Montreal. The Canadian Ski Patrol System spread across the country and became an independent organization in 1961. Many members of the CSPS are volunteers who provide much of their own gear. However, they are highly trained in all aspects of both preventing and treating skiing accidents.
