Tell Someone

Adventure Smart Intentions System - Outdoors Intentions for Land-based Activities

SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
TELL SOMEONE YOUR PLANS...BEFORE
 YOU HIT THE TRAIL...IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Although most trips into the outdoors go without a hitch, you need to be fully prepared so that if the unexpected happens there are appropriate measures in place to recognise there is a problem, alert the appropriate authorities and, if necessary, enable rescuers to find you quickly.

The New Zealand Outdoors Intentions process (endorsed by New Zealand's search and rescue agencies) provides 3 simple options which enable you to 'tell someone' all the details about your land-based trip into the outdoors.

These Outdoor Intentions are for land-based activities only, if you are looking for Boating or Aviation intentions please refer Adventure Smart Website

 
Walkers should also use the hut book system - not only when overnighting but also when passing through during the day. This greatly assists emergency services if they are required to narrow down a search area.
