Plan to return home safely

Nunavummiut are advised to plan carefully before traveling on the land or water, by taking along all necessary survival equipment (including camping gear, spare clothing, stove, food, fuel/oil, matches, etc.).

Nunavut Emergency Management encourages Nunavummiut to:

  • pick up a SPOT device with translated instruction pamphlet at their local hamlet offices and return them at the end of the trip.
  • not travel alone.
  • let someone know where they are going and when they plan to return.
  • be prepared to sustain themselves for 72 hours in case of an emergency (e.g. being lost or deteriorating weather).
