Travelling 13,609 km, connecting with 44 SAR groups, training 85 new volunteer presenters, sharing their message at 31 trail heads & ski skills, delivering 74 presentations and attending 12 outdoor events, the BC AdventureSmart Teams reached 10,626 people face-to-face between November 2017 – February 2018.
‘It’s a wrap’ for the Winter 2017-18 outreach season, however the Provincial Coordinator, Sandra Riches, is busy scheduling the Summer 2018 season ahead. She’s looking forward to expanding the outreach, developing new curriculum, educating unique target markets, building on existing partnerships, supporting the SAR prevention campaign and working with the 280 volunteer presenters in the province.
Thanks to Emma Courtney, Kelly Uren, Joël Lavigueur and Kate Johnson for a great winter season of increasing awareness to help reduce the number and severity of SAR incidents in BC.
