Outdoors Intentions > Terms & Conditions

Introduction

The Outdoors Intentions process has been developed by New Zealand's Search and Rescue agencies and key outdoor safety organisations.

The aim is to provide a choice of mechanisms (email, form and website(s) from approved external providers) which enable Outdoors Users to take responsibility for their own safety.The Outdoors Intentions process allows an Outdoors User to notify someone they trust i.e. a Trusted Contact, who is not on their trip into the outdoors, of all of the details associated with their trip.

If the Outdoors User (and/or their group) has not alerted their Trusted Contact of their safe return by the expected date and time, then the Trusted Contact may start the follow up process which may eventually involve contacting the New Zealand Police.
