Survive Outside

Statistics show that each year in British Columbia there are approximately 1,700 ground Search and Rescue incidents. They involve all types of outdoor enthusiasts, from hikers and skiers to backcountry travellers and boaters.

AdventureSmart encourages you to have fun and play, but always be informed and prepared before you set out. Time spent gaining this extra knowledge and skills can help reverse the SAR incident trend.
By following the three "T"s, AdventureSmart believes that outdoor recreationalists will significantly improve their chances of survival should they become lost or in distress. These are:

  • Trip Planning. Plan your travel route. Know the terrain and conditions. Check the weather and always fill out a trip plan.
  • Training. Obtain the knowledge and skills you need before heading out. Know and stay within your limits.
  • Taking the Essentials. Always carry these essentials, and know how to use them. Add other equipment specific to your chosen activity, season and location.
