The Civil Security Section of the Kativik Regional Government is offering tips for land safety.

​Changing weather and trail conditions, mechanical or health issues, accidents and poor preparation, are the main factors leading to dangerous situations when travelling on the land.

  • Before leaving:
    • Tell someone where you're going and when you will return;
    • Check the weather.
  • Be prepared for 72 hours! Bring: a camping stove (Coleman/Cooker), a communications device, equipment for shelter, food, fuel, tools and parts, rope, a first aid kit and a change of clothing.

If something happens, don't panic and :

STOP

Sit. And look at the situation.

Think of the resources and equipment you have.

Observe all challenges and risks.

Plan a safe strategy for survival and STAY TOGETHER with your equipment.

Enjoy the land safely!
