There has been much discussion recently on the idea of the “Trailhead Selfie“, The British Columbia Search and Rescue Association strongly encourages all persons who explore the outdoors in British Columbia to carry the 10 essentials and leave a trip plan with a responsible person who will contact Police if necessary. AdventureSmart is our endorsed SAR Prevention program and has many backcountry safety tips for a variety of outdoor activities.

The British Columbia Search and Rescue Association encourages any new ideas that may assist with the successful conclusion of a SAR incident in the shortest time, in the safest manner, including the “Trailhead Selfie”, IN ADDITION to carrying the 10 essentials and filing a trip plan.

In addition to AdventureSmart, BCSARA provides a page for several trip planning aids to assist the public in making decisions regarding their outdoor activities here.
