Use your VHF radio, which is normally monitored by the marinas. In the case of a medical emergency, the marinas have a direct line to Peoria Fire Department Lake Pleasant Base and know what questions to ask of you.
Make sure you have a VHF marine radio. A VHF marine radio is the single most important radio system you should buy. It is probably also the most inexpensive. If you plan to travel more than a few miles offshore, plan to purchase a second VHF radio or cellular telephone as well. Your VHF radio is intended mainly for short range communications, generally 5-10 miles, and at least 20 miles to a base station.
Here's what you should do:Procedure for VHF Channel 16 MAYDAY:
Stay by the radio if possible. Even after the message has been received, the Peoria FD can find you more quickly if you can transmit a signal on which a rescue boat or aircraft can home.
If you hear a distress message from a vessel and it is not answered, then you must answer. If you are reasonably sure that the distressed vessel is not in your vicinity, you should wait a short time for others to acknowledge.
For a medical emergency and your boat can make way:
Getting the victim stabilized within 60 minutes of a medical emergency is critical for survival. Steer towards Pleasant Harbor Marina to meet the rescue boat. The Peoria Fire Department Lake Pleasant Base is located at the marina. They will assemble their rescue team and/or launch the rescue boat from the courtesy dock.
