It seems that every few weeks we see or hear a story about how Hamilton EMS has had to rescue someone from the escarpment somewhere. As of November 8, 2016 there have been no fewer than 24 incidents that emergency crews responded to in Hamilton for the 2016 year.
The escarpment is a wondrous place for people to visit. Unfortunately it has some inherent dangers. Often times people will fall victim to those dangers. This is a safety reminder from the Escarpment Project’s Founder, Greg Lenko, to use proper caution when enjoying the beauty of the escarpment.
Please do not take the escarpment for granted. It is a wilderness area. Use caution.
