Snowmobile Safety

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are reminding riders that a snowmobile can quickly take you away from areas where services, communities and emergency assistance are easily accessible or available. Responsible snowmobilers take charge of their own safety and well-being by preparing their sled, gear and equipment before the first ride of the season.
