Mobile phones must NOT be used on expeditions, except in an emergency.
Any mobile phone brought to the expedition must be switched off and sealed in a bag.
Please refrain from using your phone to call others on the expedition or family/friends. This includes at camp as well as during the journey.
At the start of the expedition, your Supervisor will ask you to register 1 phone per team as the team’s emergency number.
You will also receive an Expedition Safety Card with the numbers of your Supervisor, Assessor and Home Contact.
In the event of an emergency, switch on your phone and access OS Locate to get your correct location.
Phone or text your Supervisor with your situation and location.
If you cannot get in touch with your Supervisor, advise the Home Contact numbers on your card.
Keep the emergency phone switched on until otherwise informed by your Supervisor.
