Sasquatch River Markers

Yellowhead County Protective Services has placed several Sasquatch signs at various launch spots on Yellowhead County rivers with an aim to alert river users to the potential consequences on the river and to act as a rescue tool if needed.

The signs also act as a rescue assistance tool. Each sign is numbered, and anyone needing help on the river can reference the last numerical sign they saw if they need to call 9-1-1 for help. That number will give first responders a better idea of where they are stranded on the river and help to reduce the time for first responders to locate the source of the distress call.

The Sasquatch campaign is part of a partnership with several other Eastern Slopes counties in Alberta that are working together to remind people to reduce their environmental footprint when participating in recreational activities in our natural areas and is aimed at all outdoor recreational users. The Sasquatch river signage campaign is a Yellowhead County Protective Services specific initiative.
