We rarely head out for an outdoor adventure with the expectation that something will go wrong, and most times everything will go right. However, sometimes the unexpected happens and when it does, it’s important that you are well informed and well prepared to minimize the negative impact of unfortunate circumstances.
For general information on how to stay safe and a list of the 10 essential items you should bring when enjoying the outdoors visit www.adventuresmart.ca.

You can do your part as visitors by making sure you seek out the information you need to stay safe and make well informed decisions while enjoying these special places.
