Be Prepared

Walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers; Please, please,please, carry a paper map of the area you are in ( and compass ) and know how to read them.
Electronic devices, GPS, phones, phone apps etc. are great until the battery runs out, they crash or you lose signal.
Knowing where you are and being able to see a way out or place of help or refuge can prevent an uncomfortable situation getting worse.

In An Emergency

Thanks to the Authority, new signs informing walkers, fell runners and other outdoor enthusiasts ‘what to do in an emergency’ will very shortly be in place at each of the shelters.
