We encourage all walkers, whether travelling alone or in a group, to complete the trip intention form and give it to a responsible adult in case there are unforeseen circumstances and you require emergency assistance.
Sending your trip intentions to nominated contact people is a good practice for any trip in the wilderness or outdoors. Information on trip planning and what to do if you get lost is also provided in the interests of improved safety for outdoors and wilderness trips and adventures. You can download, complete and email or print out a completed Trip Intentions form then distribute hard copies and also leave copy in a vehicle.
Visit Trip Intentions to download a form supplied by Victoria Police.
Thanks to Peter Campbell, the convenor of Bush Search and Rescue Victoria and the Victoria Police for the development of this form.
