We have partnered with Adventure Smart to sumarise advice for the outdoors and describe some of our hot spots around the lakes. Click the link at the top for more information. LDSAMRA in conjunction with Cicerone are pleased to announce our new revised version of ‘Stay Safe and Enjoy the Fells’ leaflet. You can download a copy, or take a free printed copy from outlets throughout the Lake District. The leaflet is intended to help people make the right choices before going into the hills and provide information for what to do in the event of an accident. It’s available in numerous outlets throughout Cumbria and the Lake District and would be a very helpful addition to anyone’s rucksack when they head into the fells. LDSAMRA is looking to continue the partnership with Cicerone for future publications with an aim to reducing casualty numbers through free and available mountain safety information along with our new Adventure Smart partnership.
There is no doubt that using mobile phones have saved lives in the mountains and fells of this country. The sooner rescue teams are alerted to an incident, the better are the chances of a quick and complete recovery for the victim. However, over the past few years there have been occasions when teams have been alerted inappropriately. The notes that follow are given in the hope that the mobile phone can be used to better effect and to minimise any frustration.When to use
