Management of Critical Incidents

Operation Flinders Challenge participants have a responsibility to act safely at all times, taking reasonable care to protect their own health and safety and that of fellow participants. Event organisers will ensure as far as reasonably practical that the event is held safely, and in the event of any critical incident, plans are activated to prevent and/or minimise risk to participants.

Some examples of potential critical incidents include:

  • Bush accidents - falls, snakebites, etc.
  • Getting lost
  • Extreme weather - storms, lightning, floods, heat
  • Sudden serious illness - heart attack, asthma, etc.
  • Bushfire

Please be aware off, and listen to, all event staff and officials.  They will provide you with the necessary information required to manage any of the above situations.
