Agencies conducting adventure sports programmes in the district will be forced to comply with safety norms as the district administration has prepared a guideline to be followed for holding such events.
District Collector P. Balakiran said here on Friday that adventure sports events would be allowed only if the organisers complied with the guidelines. Releasing the guidelines at the Collectorate, he said that a safety-and-rescue committee had been formed to take safety-related decisions regarding the organisation of the adventure sports events, he said.
The committee chaired by the Collector has the District Police Chief, District Medical Officer, Fire and Rescue Assistant Divisional Officer, District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) secretary and the Adventure Academy special officer as members.
