Staff Resources

Image of wilderness First Aid kitThe following is a list of resources that our staff have available to them during their trip.

  • An extensive Wilderness First Aid Kit
  • An emergency communication device (e.g. satellite phone, SPOT, EPIRB)
  • An emergency kit (contents include animal deterrents and emergency signalling devices)

Although they travel separately, they communicate with each other daily and depending on the circumstances, they may do visual check ins as well. The rationale behind twin tripping is that, should the need arise, there is an ability to double your resources. We have found this to be an invaluable means of helping to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
