Backcountry Register is a place people can post details of their trips so that in case of an emergency, rescuers are better equipped to search in the most efficient manner possible.
Each year thousands of hikers require rescue. Of those, 97% are found within 24 hours. The rest remain in the wilderness trying to survive until help arrives, if it ever does.
By registering your trip (especially if you're solo) you increase the likelihood of being found quickly in the case of an emergency.
What we ARE:
- A log of your adventures
- A resource for rescue workers
- An additional backup
What we're NOT:
- A rescue service
- An emergency alert service
- An excuse to take greater risks
- Responsible for your decisions
