Important Safety Tips When Camping
Remember how important it is to follow a set of rules rules on safety measures when you decide to go camping in a new location and for some days.
What things to take:
One of the most important things you need to take with you on any outing is a first-aid kit. While no one expects to get hurt, it is wise to be prepared lest you don't get into a mess and spoil your outing.
You have to be accessible for easy communication with the outside world and in this respect what better facilities one enjoys in the modern day with that ubiquitous cell phone at ready service in everyone's possession.Make sure that people at home know your whereabouts and your plans as to when you intend returning home.
Besides the first aid kit, an emergency kit with signaling apparatus, a compass, a fire starter and even a laptop can become handy when on an outing.Keep your matches,lighters and other things in a waterproof container or even a sealed plastic bag that can act in place of a waterproof container.
Some other safety tips that need to be observed:
Make sure that you are not walking around without safety shoes. The safety shoes need to compromise with the purpose and environment that greets you.
An extra set of dry cloths, a jacket of a kind can be welcome additions particularly in windy and hilly surroundings.
Carry a flash torch with new batteries or one that can be hand cranked to charge.
Do not wander too far from the camp nor walk around alone.
While no one expects an accident or get lost,yet it's always good to ' be prepared' as scouts do.
