If you love to spend time in the outdoors, stack the odds in your favor if something goes wrong.
"Letting someone know where you are headed and when to expect you back is extremely important. If search and rescue agencies are notified of a missing hiker within hours instead of days, the probability of a positive outcome increases dramatically."
HikerAlert makes it easy for you to record and share vital information about your outdoor trips with your friends and family. If you don't check-in from a trip by your scheduled return time, HikerAlert will send alert text messages and detailed trip reports via email to your emergency contacts. HikerAlert can't prevent accidents from happening, but it can be a true lifesaver when they do.
You don't need to carry your cell phone with you.
Once you record a trip, the information is stored on HikerAlert's servers, so you don't need to have your cell phone or cell service for HikerAlert to send its alerts. Go out, have fun and HikerAlert will still do its job.
While you do have a cellular or wi-fi connection, you can access HikerAlert on any Web-connected device, including any computer, mobile device or tablet. And because HikerAlert is Web-based, rather than installed on just your mobile phone, you'll never need to download updates. You'll automatically have the latest version each time you log-in.
