Know where you’re going this summer

If you’re heading into the bush or on the water this summer, make sure you’ve got the map, chart and navigation equipment you need.

If you’re heading into the bush, plan your trip with a topo map, check the weather, and pack your map or some other reliable navigation tool.

Boaties and yachties also need to make sure they’ve got the right nautical chart, and check tide predictions and weather forecasts as they plan their trips.

It’s also important to take a reliable way of calling for help, like a distress beacon, if something goes wrong.
