AdventureSmart TripPlan App

AdventureSmart Have Developed a great App!

AdventureSmart (www.adventuresmart.ca), and its suite of five programs, is a national prevention program focused on reaching Canadians, and visitors to Canada, who participate in outdoor recreational activities.

From their brochure (which can be found here) says, “AdventureSmart is a national program dedicated to encouraging Canadians and visitors to Canada to “Get informed and go outdoors”. Promoting fun and outdoor recreation, AdventureSmart balances key safety messages with an individual’s responsibility for safety; encouraging the public to obtain the knowledge, skills and equipment necessary for them to enjoy their outdoor pursuits. AdventureSmart combines online and on-site awareness with targeted outreach to try and reduce the number and severity of search and rescue (SAR) incidents. AdventureSmart believes that providing this information will allow outdoor recreationalists to signicantly improve their ability to make informed decisions, mitigate risk and change their behaviour.”

They have also developed a smart phone app for Trip Planning to help inform others that you are taking a back-country trip and that in case of emergency, others can help find or rescue you if necessary.

Here is a link on their website to the app description.
