| Covered in this section:
The “Be Safer” section of OffroadSafety.org covers information on how to ensure that you are prepared to have a safe and fun time offroading.
In this section, you will read about the importance of ensuring that you have a plan before hitting the trails, have good contact information readily accessible and what information will be useful for first responders to have in a medical emergency. Information such as first aid kits and some items that you may want to pack in your vehicle are also covered.
Offroading can be an adrenaline rush and is inherently dangerous. You are taking a vehicle away from the improved roadways and into austere conditions. Your vehicle may or may not be up to the task and issues may arise that will test your ability to think on your feet and adapt to the situation. We recommend that you read through the pages on this site. You will not remember everything and you do not need to print off the pages, but just learning and knowing that there are options available and actively preparing for unplanned events will help to make offroading more enjoyable and safer for everyone.
You can start learning by checking the links on the left listed under the heading “Be Safer”. We have a lot of good information presented to you by people with many years of offroading, military and survival experience that volunteer their time to provide this useful information to you..
We do have some products available in our downloads section that you or your group are free to reprint and use.
If you have any information which you think would be a useful addition to OffroadSafety.org, please contact us through the links at the bottom of the page and tell us about it. Our goal is to work together to maintain a useful site containing relevant information that can help other offroad more safely, get people and vehicles out of austere environments and get found if needed in emergency situations.
