Kitimat RCMP remind public to share travel plans with family and friends

Share travel plans with family and friends before hiking or hunting

Kitimat RCMP are reminding the public that if you want to take advantage of the warm weather and go hiking or hunting, it’s important that you have a travel plan.

Having a travel plan means your route is planned in advance, you know the terrain and conditions, and most importantly friends or family know where you are going.

Travel plans are essential because if you don’t return when expected, the responsible parties can notify the proper authorities with your location and therefore find you in a timely manner.

For more information and a copy of a travel plan go the BC Search and Rescue website or follow this link www.adventuresmart.ca/trip_safety/planning.htm.
