@campbell_r_SAR @BCSARAssoc ⛺️Emergency Shelter ⛺️
Always bring an emergency shelter. These can also be used as signalling devices and can be very useful in creating a makeshift shelter to keep a person dry.

If you see us this summer @ a trailhead, swing by & grab one!

Helicopter landing pads are no place for a picnic!
These are active aircraft landings for emergencies and must remain vacant at all times. For your safety and ours, please stay off of helicopter landings pads during your summer hikes.
Have a safe #BCDay long weekend. #StaySafe

How are your shelter building skills? What do you put in your pack to make a shelter in an emergency? BC AdventureSmart British Columbia Search and Rescue Association @BCSARAssoc @BCAdvSmart
