Outdoor Safety and Incident Prevention – An Outdoor Recreation Council of BC Webinar
The Outdoor Recreation Council of BC is the host for a live webinar on outdoor safety and trip planning with presentations from AdventureSmart’s Sandra Riches and John Blown from North Shore Rescue.
Statistics show that each year across BC there are approximately 1,700 search and rescue incidents. They involve all types of outdoor enthusiasts, from hikers, skiers and mountain bikers to backcountry travellers, equestrians, quad riders and boaters. Join us to learn what you can do to stay safe and be properly prepared as you head into the outdoors this summer.
