Safety Information

The safety of trekkers is the highest priority for the trek organisers. Safety comes first before anything else, which means that if the trek has to be called off or suspended due to any issue that may compromise the safety of trekkers, the organisers will not hesitate to do that.

We have a full risk management plan in place that has been developed specifically for the trek, and this is implemented through the event safety plan.

Each trek team is issued with a full course map, and instructions on what to do in the event of an emergency or a situation requiring course evacuation.

All volunteers are issued with a crew booklet with emergency details and contact details of all people they may need to contact during the event. All key event officials will have a radio or Satellite phone for communications.

The trek will have a high level of IT and communications infrastructure in place, including satellite phones for key trek staff and volunteers, and internet connection at campsite.

There will also be a duplex radio communications system across the course allowing all event officials to be in constant radio communications throughout the event.              

Each group of Trekkers in the Burke and Wills Trek will have a 2 way radio also allowing trekkers to signal for help should they require assistance at any point in time, and also radio in at each key checkpoint on the course so Trek organisers can monitor their progress.
