Next LLCNPC Board Meeting March 16, 2014
at the Matthews Public Safety Building 11AM. Community members are encouraged to attend.
There are inherent risks associated with living and playing at Lake Louise and the surrounding areas. One of these risks is the treatment of those injured while enjoying the great outdoors.
We have a very limited but experienced group of EMS providers that are available most of the time. But there will be times when they aren’t in the area or when weather or water conditions prevent them with the ability to respond safely. In most cases, it takes time for the responders to get where the injured person is located. For that time period, people need to be able to provide some capability to help themselves or their neighbors. I am embarking on a quest to provide whatever training is suitable or wanted for each of you to enable you to provide immediate care while waiting for EMS responders to arrive.
This training can be as simple as and time restricted as “CPR in a box”. This training teaches people how to identify a lack of a pulse and be able to provide chest compressions enhancing the chances of the injured to survive a heart attack. Training is about an hour. If you desire to be a card carrying “CPR person” (which includes more than just performing chest compressions) that training takes about 8 hours. First aid type classes can run 4-8 hours depending on the depth of training. Training like this can also be broken down into 4 hour segments if desired.
This program is not being designed for us to gain responders in the area, but for you to be able to help yourselves or your neighbors if needed. If you do want to become a responder in our community, that takes at least a 40 hour commitment on your part to attend classes. That would give you an Emergency Trauma Technician certification.
You can also attend Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) classes. This is a free 20 hour course that teaches people how to take care of themselves and neighbors in the event of a disaster. The course covers Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety, Search and Rescue Techniques and some medical training.
Most of the ability to do the training resides in our community. Some of it would have to be developed. Some would entail having the Mat-Su Borough send up instructors which they are willing to do. Some training entails taking classes in the Central Mat-Su Borough. Any and all training would be free of charge. All we need from you is what type of training you would desire, how much time you are willing to give to get the training, and best time for you to receive it.
If you are interested in doing any of this or just need more details, please contact Mike Fassler at 907-227-9235, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help yourself and your neighbors by learning some little things that could save a life or limb while out “in the bush” awaiting EMS help.

Matthews Public Safety Building is now open!
As an interim solution, community members have proposed using the Susitna/Lake Louise channel on 30 minute intervals. North bound traffic on the hour and south bound traffic on the half hour. Please see the attached flyer.

Board Meeting Protocol
Lake Louise and the surrounding area are home to a great variety of wildlife and birds. It is the only known recorded freshwater nesting site for cormorants. Lake Louise is the farthest north where the cormorant is found. The nesting site is accessible by boat from all of the lodges. Bird Island is also a rare inland nesting site for gulls. The Lake Louise area is the summer home to thousands of trumpeter swans and other water fowl. Caribou often spend the winter in the area and moose are a common sight around the lake and on the Lake Louise Road.
Lake Louise is fed by small streams and run off from snow and rain. It drains into Lake Susitna, which in turn drains into Lake Tyone. Lake Tyone drains into the Tyone River which flows into the Susitna River and finally into Cook Inlet. The Susitna River travels through Devils Canyon and although a few rafts have made it through, it is extremely dangerous. The water runs so fast through the canyon that salmon cannot traverse the route. Consequently, there are no salmon in the Lake Louise basin.
Today, Lake Louise is home to several businesses, most of which are open year round. Many people now reside in the area as well as many other people have recreational and weekend homes in the area. Lake Louise, Lake Susitna and Lake Tyone have great fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, biking, snowmachining, skiing, skating, hunting, Northern Lights viewing and is a great spot to relax and unwind. Come join us and experience real Alaska at Lake Louise’s summer and winter playground.
