All researchers using CPS-chartered aircraft must have emergency survival gear and a satellite phone.
Emergency gear should include dry, warm clothing, food, and water. Additional gear may include bear protection, shelter, and a sleeping bag. Alaska state law requires that air providers have a certain minimum of survival gear on board; however, this may not always be accessible, or adequate.
CPS offers a basic survival bag to researchers upon request. Additionally, CPS can customize a survival bag to fit the needs of any group. Click the links below for examples of standard two-person bags.
