Sandra Riches is the Executive Director of the BC AdventureSmart program and she joins me on the podcast to talk about how search and rescue works in BC, using the AdventureSmart App to leave a trip plan, and the essential gear to make hunting and foraging adventures safer. There's lots of good info in this podcast to stay safe on your next adventure.
Everything is "unprecedented" this past year, including the number of search and rescue calls for people on outdoor adventurers. More people than ever are getting out into our wilderness to take refuge from the challenges that have come with the pandemic. AdventureSmart and Sandra Riches are working to reach folks to help them get prepared for their outdoor adventures so their trip doesn’t result in another call to 911.
