Safety

  • Medical Emergencies: With any emergency, contact 911 immediately. Then, immediately report any medical emergencies to Dispatch along with all details you could retrieve from the incident. Please remain calm to ensure the situation is handled in the best manner possible. Once you have reported the emergency to 911 and Dispatch please return to you Crew role. Medical Staff are available at all route stops and camp in case assistance is required as well. Staff is equipped with a 2-way radio and a mobile phone and will have comprehensive information on local hospitals, emergency facilities, police, fire, and other important emergency information. Doctors, emergency medical personnel and an ambulance will be available.
  • Sweep Assistance: If you see a walker that is injured or unable to walk, they will make a “thumbs down” signal to stop a passing sweep vehicle. These vehicles are reserved for injured Walkers and those unable to complete the day’s ride; they are not to be utilized as a taxi service. They will not go directly to Ceremonies during the day. Sweep vehicles will take Walkers to the next Pit Stop on route, where buses will take them to Ceremonies. Only injured Walkers will receive prompt medical attention and transport. If a Walker is picked up early in the day, it may be hours before they are delivered to Ceremonies by bus due to availability. As it nears the route closure time, sweep vehicles will pick up Walkers who are still on the road.
  • Practice safety to yourself and others on your team. Stay hydrated, make sure to eat throughout the day and protect yourself from the weather. Ensure to wear a hat if sunny and wear layers if it’s cold. Bring Rain Gear for the event. The weather can shift quickly so please have a bag with you at all times with gear it in you may require throughout the entire day to remain safe and comfortable. These events run rain or shine so you want to be prepared.
  • If you see any unsafe behavior from fellow Crew Members or Walkers, please do not hesitate to remind everyone to be safe and take care of one another. If you require assistance from your Team Captain or Staff member, please do not hesitate to do so. Safety is our first priority!
  • If you are driving a crew vehicle, please stay focused on the Road at all times. No headphones and only hands free phone systems must be used while driving.
  • All Crew must follow the rules of the roads, as the Walk does not receive any special privileges from local authorities.
  • In a situation of poor weather or emergency please remain calm and follow the direction from staff or local authorities. It is our job to remain calm and ensure the Walkers remain safe at all times.
  • Remain in contact with Dispatch and answer their calls throughout the entire day. The Dispatch team needs to know you and your team is safe and has everything you need.
  • Smile and remember to have fun!
