Know Before You Go to Work is a new program that the Friends of CAIC and CAIC launched during the 2019/2020 season. Thousands of people work in and around avalanche terrain throughout the United States. Many of those working in avalanche terrain do not have the proper training regarding how to stay safe and mitigate their risk.
Since 1950, 73 have lost their lives in avalanches while at work. Every one of those deaths could have been prevented. The goal of Know Before You Go to Work is to provide proper training to help keep those working in avalanche terrain safe.
