PNTMC maintains a database of members' names, next of kin, addresses and phone numbers.
Names and phone numbers of new members are introduced in a current newsletter at time of joining. Leaders' names and phone numbers are circulated within and outside the club via the newsletter, events card and the web. A current list of members, addresses and phone numbers is circulated once a year to all members.
Lists of trip participants are kept in case of search & rescue or emergency contact reasons for the duration of the trip. Members' names, contact details and next of kin are made available to the authorities in the event of a search enquiry.
