Wake the World (WTW) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a group of boat owners providing watersports opportunities to abandoned, abused and neglected children, as well as for the handicapped and our wounded warriors. WTW began in 2008 with 8 families providing a day on the lake for some residents of a local children's home. In 2013, WTW became the largest all volunteer organization of its kind, with over 300 volunteered boats world-wide! We strive to make these events as easy as possible to host, and have a network of boat volunteers and sponsors to help support each event. We also provide insurance and liability waivers for every local event. All WTW events are sanctioned and insured through the WWA (World Wakeboard Association).
Comments: Emergency Access: An emergency access path of no less that 20’ wide shall be maintained free and clear of all immovable objects on streets and fire apparatus access roads at all times during the event. Road blocks may be placed on public streets to prevent traffic from crossing, but cannot block emergency travel. If road blocks are used ensure staff is available to remove barricade should emergency travel be necessary. (2006 IFC, 503.1).
Comments: Proper fitting PFD's are required for all participants in or on vessels. Please provide an Emergency Communications Plan which outlines how medical/fire/law enforcement will be contacted, if necessary. Also, please provide the name and cell phone number of a safety officer. This person will be responsible for ensuring that medical/fire/law enforcement is notified in the event of an emergency. This person should be available during the entire event in case we need to reach someone at the event.
