THE PROJECT:

SledSafe is the public safety and industry training arm of the British Columbia Snowmobile Federation.The BCSF was formed in 1965 as an organization dedicated to snowmobile safety, the growth of the sport, protection of the environment, and securing access to public lands for all.The Federation supports over 60 snowmobile clubs throughout the province. These predominantly volunteer organizations work diligently to provide winter trail grooming, warming shelters, signage, and public outreach education to maintain safe and rewarding snowmobile opportunities. We also train and administer a team of highly qualified instructors who deliver programs throughout British Columbia geared towards enhancing public safety.

This winter, SledSafe will be launching a program to generate digital media content in support of public safety outreach efforts. This library will grow over the years to a comprehensive reference database for use by instructors, clubs, and the public at large.

We are looking for a person or company to produce a cohesive series of informative videos about snowmobile safety to be featured on SledSafe and partner web and media channels.
