Terms & Conditions

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM)

LCMM makes every effort to ensure a safe, positive, and enriching experience for all participants. We focus on safety and accident prevention, and we are trained and certified in CPR/First Aid to promptly respond in the unlikely event that an incident occurs.

Consent to Administer Non-Emergency First Aid

You understand and acknowledge that occasionally a condition may develop which necessitates the administration of non-emergency First Aid. Therefore, in the event of non-emergency injury or illness, which necessitates the administration of non-emergency First Aid, you hereby authorize LCMM and its staff to administer any necessary non-emergency First Aid. Non-emergency First Aid treatment may include, but is not limited to cleaning, applying anti-biotic ointment to, and bandaging cuts or abrasions; removal of ticks and splinters; and applying an ice pack to bites, stings, or an injury. The following substances may be used in the administration of non-emergency First Aid: water, ice pack, ACE bandage, antibacterial soap, alcohol swabs, anti-biotic ointment, and Band-Aids. No other medication will be administered unless authorized and directed by the course participant.

You understand that if you do not consent to the administration of non-emergency First Aid or to the administration of any of the substances listed above, you will give written notification to LCMM no later than seven business days before the course begins.

Consent to Arrange Emergency Treatment

In the unlikely event of a life- or limb-threatening emergency, you give consent to LCMM and its staff to administer emergency First Aid as a first response until more advanced medical care is available. You understand that LCMM and its staff will use their best judgment, act in good faith, and will treat with the intention of not causing further harm.

Consent to Administer Emergency First Aid

You also understand that the emergency contact you provided us will be contacted at the earliest possible moment in the event of an emergency.
