911 emergency plan

Recommended Posts

I imagine this plan will be adopted else where in Quebec but the MRC des Laurentides has made a plan of evacuation obligatory for all recreational trails in case of emergency in it’s territory. There will be 911 emergency signs at the beginning of trails and every 2 KM a sign with a location number beginning with the letter F, so the 911 operator will know exactly where you are when you tell them the F-number. This system is only going into service next season but already the signs are being installed..

If only we had cell service on those trails!

Surprisingly, a lot of the trails around in the MRC district have decent coverage, yes some dead spots but we have come along way. As mentioned hope nobody has to use it.

Instead of a few seasons of renting a sat phone one could own this tough little mutha:

And with the Roadpost Iridium monthly plans the unit doesn't just quit after a bucket of minutes like prepaid plans:

× 2 on that Don same as air medic....

These guys may not deploy a chopper for every belly-ache, but they have ground logistics dialed in all across PQ, and now super-affordable with the seasonal bundle:
