THE NEW ZEALAND MOUNTAIN SAFETY COUNCIL


The New Zealand Mountain Safety Council The New Zealand Mountain Safety Council (MSC) is a national organisation with a mandate to encourage safe participation in land-based outdoor activities. It does this through the development and promotion of safety messaging, by identifying and responding to insights provided by the ongoing collection and analysis of data, and by building partnerships with relevant organisations.

The Firearms and Hunter Safety programme is one of the cornerstones of our organisation and the MSC is active in promoting firearms and hunter safety in New Zealand. For more information about the MSC or its Firearms and Hunter Safety programme, visit: www.mountainsafety.org.nz
