On the Land Safety: Enjoy the Land Safely in 2018
The Civil Security Section of the Kativik Regional Government is offering tips for land safety.
Changing weather and trail conditions, mechanical or health issues, accidents and poor preparation, are the main factors leading to dangerous situations when travelling on the land.
• Before leaving:
o Tell someone where you’re going and when you will return;
o Check the weather.
• Be prepared for 72 hours! Bring: a camping stove, a communications device, equipment for shelter, food, fuel, tools and parts, rope, a first aid kit and a change of clothing.
If something happens, don’t panic and:
Sit. And look at the situation.
Think of the resources and equipment you have.
Observe all challenges and risks.
Plan a safe strategy for survival and STAY TOGETHER with your equipment.
Enjoy the land safely!
