Wilderness Recovery Just Got Better

black-hills-062013

Every year, First Responders are tasked with finding that needle in a haystack when outdoors men & women become lost, injured, or incapacitated. The scenario plays out thousands of times across the country when people fall victim to unforeseen accidents like OHV crashes, falls, animal attacks, incidental shootings,  and weather in the great outdoors. News outlets run countless stories about notifications of missing persons, with very little information available for Search & Rescue to begin the recovery process. We’re always pleased when the results turn out positively for the victims. But, too often people don’t survive due to exposure or catastrophic injuries that could’ve been treated with a little more time. Moments, not minutes, are often the difference between life and death.

Anyone entering the wilderness has been told to always leave a record behind for safety and emergency response. But, what is the best way to do that? Voice message, text , written notes, a map, via social media? And where is it best to leave that information? Home, vehicle, camp, with friends or family? Everyone would certainly have their preferred method or opinion, but why not do it all?

The difficulty in beginning the recovery process is that there is no standard by which people are encouraged to communicate their intentions, and therefore no single utility that can provide information necessary to start the process every time. A comprehensive notification program, an easy-to-use map utility, vehicle displays, field alerts, and interactive property displays would contribute greatly to shortening the recovery cycle and also provide recognizable components with which all Responders are familiar.

That’s exactly what Outdoor Tracker Systems does for you! Plot your intentions on a web-based public map, display your personalized printed map in a standardized vehicle display, alert others of your presence in the field, and communicate your location, activity, and duration to others for safety, privacy, and emergency response.

If you’re a First Responder, there’s no doubt that you’ll recover an outdoorsman who shares information far faster than one who does not. And, if you’re an outdoorsman who communicates with others just in case of emergency, you’ll enjoy your outdoor experience just a little bit more knowing that you’ve done everything you can to help others help you.
