Getting ready to hit the trails this summer?! We have developed a few resources to help you and your family stay safe.
Below you will find the link to download a printable packing list to help ensure nothing gets left behind! Remember you are not only packing for your day hiking, but also for contingencies in case something goes wrong. As a parent herself, Lynda has developed this list to make sure you have everything you might need!
When ever you embark on an adventure it is important to make sure you have a safety plan in place. A safety plan will not only provide you useful information and tools should something go wrong, but it also serves as a framework to help you prepare properly, thereby mitigating your risk.
Together with Morgan from Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine we developed a safety planning sheet that you can use with your family when ever you decide to hit the trails.
A well stocked first aid kit is also something that every family should have with them on the trail! In collaboration with the founder of Mountain Med Online (a Calgary based company), we have developed a checklist that families can use to ensure that they have all of the right things in their first aid kit.
