Trip safety awareness
Members of a trip party (especially leaders and novices) need to consider that the backcountry (particularly the alpine environment) has certain risks and that participants are collectively and individually responsible for their safety. Download a copy of an emergency SAR form and pop it into your pack - you could save someone's life.
We are into this feedback thingy. Been on a trip of ours and have some thoughts for us to consider, then why not fill out an events feedback sheet? Alternatively use the form and email us directly.
A detailed list of actions useful for both leaders and participants is available. How to handle an emergency - suggestion: digest before your trip, print and take a copy with you.
