Tips and Emergency protocol
For a hike, it is always recommended to form a team of 3 persons. If an accident occurred, a hiker stays with the person in need and the other goes to reach help noting the nearest reference point and the access road. This information is most useful for the Emergence System 911.
The use of a cell phone is not always possible on many sections of the IAT. On the summits we sometimes succeed. In case of emergency we must go and reach a phone to call 911.
