CANIS LUPUS / Safety Facilities

CANIS LUPUS

Taiwan has plentiful topography,the rich climbing resources attract many people to get into mountain climbing;however,the percentage of people who get trapped in mountains is rise yearly,among them,the highest percentage is get lost and losing contact,about 45%.

These search and rescue operation always cost a lot,and the results are not good.

To quickly locate people and cut costs,we set up many signal station in mountains,like the bonfire,it burning straw to make signal smoke,the white smoke can rise high,increasing the chance of rescue for the trapped people.
