Yorkshire Coast Residents Urged To Be 'Adventure Smart'

Yorkshire Coast Residents Urged To Be 'Adventure Smart'

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 23rd December 2019.

Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team are promoting a new safety scheme.

It is for those who are planning on doing outdoor activities, like walking hills or kayaking.

The charity is asking people to be 'Adventure Smart' by asking three questions before setting off.

Those are:

  1. Do I have the right gear?
  2. Do I know what the weather will be like?
  3. Am I confident that I have the knowledge and skills for the day?

Ian Hugill, Incident Controller at Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team, said:

"The idea behind it is firstly to allow people to enjoy the beautiful moors and forests that we've got around here.

Secondly, if they do get into trouble then they know what to do.

One of our objectives is to help educate and if we can help people to better understand how to stay safe in the hills, that's good for them.

It's also good for us and it keeps our resources free for that emergency that happens that you can't manage, you can't cater for, and perhaps somebody who's really in distress can use our services better."

Ian has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Karen Liu:
