An emergency communications device and first aid kit should be carried on all trips.  The club has an emergency satellite locator beacon, it should be carried on any FTORC trip where cellphone reception is unavailable.  Contact Bev to uplift it.

Inform your trip leader if you have any medical conditions that might impair your independence on a trip.

Trip leaders should appoint a contact person who is aware of trip intentions and the expected trip return date.

There are two primary New Zealand online resources to assist members to plan and execute trips with safety in mind:

1. New Zealand Mountain Safety Council Outdoor Safety Code

2. In the Mountains, the Federated Mountain Clubs online manual for Aotearoa's outdoors

Trip participants are encouraged to review both.  Please notify any incidents on club trips to the committee for shared learning.
