GOES’ new feature, PrecisionAlert now contains Recreate Responsibly Protocols, an Innovation in Recreation

San Francisco, Calif., (Nov 27, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – GOES Health, the award winning outdoor health and safety platform, is delighted to announce its partnership with Recreate Responsibly, the coalition working to inform people on how to safely and responsibly recreate outdoors.

The partnership promotes safety and preparedness in the outdoors, considering not only the health of the users, but also the health of the outdoor ecosystem they recreate within, and comes at a time where both environmental and climate impacts are at the forefront of human interaction with the outdoors.

With the objective of enabling people to make informed health and safety decisions in the backcountry, GOES has added the Recreate Responsibly guidelines to its expansive library of self-guided protocols, including Know Before You Go, Plan and Prepare, Build an Inclusive Outdoors, Respect Others, Leave No Trace, and Make it Better, now available on the GOES app.

“Partnering with Recreate Responsibly marks a significant step in our mission to empower adventurers with essential, real-time outdoor safety tools and education” shares Camilo Barcenas, CEO and cofounder of GOES Health. “Integrating their respected guidelines into GOES enriches our commitment to fostering responsible outdoor activities, while ensuring users can enjoy nature with mindfulness and preparedness. This collaboration is a testament to our shared vision of creating a safer, more respectful, and environmentally conscious outdoor community.”

In addition to Recreate Responsibly guidelines being added to GOES database, Recreate Responsibly Coalition followers now get a free month trial of the GOES App. When users upgrade to a year subscription of GOES, proceeds from the purchase will support work of the Recreate Responsibly coalition.

“At its core the Recreate Responsibly movement aims to nurture a ‘culture of caring’—caring for ourselves, for one another, and for the outdoor spaces that help make us whole,” said Eugenie Bostrom, managing director of the Recreate Responsibly Coalition.” Whether people are spending time outdoors for the first time or the hundredth time, we know that people can always use updated and accessible information on the places they’re going or on the potential risks of outdoor activities.”
