In the midst of snowmobile season Pelican Narrows RCMP offer a friendly safety reminder to snowmobile operators. They note drivers and passengers must always wear safety gear that is property fitted and weather appropriate. Ensure your snowmobile is well maintained and in good operating condition.
Check weather conditions and tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back. Make sure your snowmobile is equipped with an emergency kit and first aid supplies. Ride to your comfort and ability. Parents make sure your children are old enough and trained to operate the snowmobile. Ride with a buddy and never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The RCMP reminds you to enjoy the outdoors and make it home safely.
