11. SAFETY

Enjoy the Hope area safely.

If you are an impromptu visitor, keep an open mind and allow for a ‘Plan B’ if something doesn’t work out. There is much to see and enjoy in the Hope area. We hope your experience is excellent!

Planning ahead? I hope the information on this and other Hope sites is helpful. Remember to use Yelp, Trip Advisor, Urban Spoon and other review sites to inform yourself.

Online Reviews. If you have had an excellent experience, please share it on a suitable review site so others also read about what you enjoyed. If you have a complaint, please connect with the owner or operator directly to ensure it wasn’t just a misunderstanding or unique situation. An unnecessary negative review online can cause hardship for a business and most times a negative experience can be corrected if the owner or operator is made aware directly.

Please be safe. Recreational activities in the outdoors have an element of inherent risk and can cause personal injury to you or those near you. If you become lost, emergency agencies, often volunteer groups such as Search and Rescue or the Volunteer Fire Department, will come to your aid and this involves some degree of risk for them.

Please drive carefully and defensively. Our highways in this area are effective but busier than they have ever been. Weather changes can occur rapidly. Watch for wildlife on the road.
