SAR Awareness - CASARA Lethbridge Zone 1
SAR Awareness is a CASARA outreach to promote and describe who and what CASARA is. The main message is geared to discussions with pilots and the general flying public to be prepared if a incident occurs. CASARA wants everyone to have the right tools and the right skills to survive a couple of nights out in the wild. The tools will help you get found and skills in proper use of the tools from a basic knowledge that may be the key to your survival.
The SAR Awareness Pilot Safety Campaign.
It's hard to know what to say when you first greet a new person. The Pilot Safety Campaign, provides an ice breaker to enter into a dialogue with a pilot and ask them about their safety practises. The 10 question survey is geared toward discovering just how prepared they are for a survival scenario. We record the results and also hand them the results so they have a paper reminder of things they may need to examine.
We also give them a Pilot Safety Kit, as shown in the header picture, as a gift for participating.
