Simple snow safety guidelines

Safety Tips:

  • Hug a Tree Program:
      Children should always tell an adult where they are going. If lost, the best move to is to "hug a tree" and stay put. Keeping warm and dry is important. Lost children can help their searchers by answering their calls. Carrying a garbage bag and whistle will help keep a child dry and alert searchers.
  • Always have a meeting spot, a designated location in case your group becomes separated.
  • Walky talkies are a great way to communicate when cell phone service is poor.
  • Wear a helmet, use sunscreen and goggles or sunglasses.
  • Use handwarmers and water resistant gloves or mittens.
