Camping Safety 101

Camping Safety 101

Importance of Camping Safety Gear

While camping gets you out into nature’s fresh air, sunshine, and away from the comforts of home, it’s important to keep safe.

In recent months, the country has felt the effects of natural disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, and flooding, and for some, the results have been devastating. When you go camping you are subject to Mother Nature at it’s best and worst. Everyday dangers of camping include sunburns, insect bites, and numerous injuries.

Here are some tips to keep you safe when camping:

  • Check the weather forecast (note: if there are weather warnings posted for the weekend of your trip, don’t take the chance – postpone!)
  • Plan meals in advance
  • Stay on trails
  • Wear sunscreen and insect repellent
  • Never approach wild animals
  • Supervise your children
  • Fill the cooler full of ice
  • Contain campfires, never leave them unattended
  • Keep propane canisters upright and out of sunlight
  • Take extra care around water
  • Wash your hands often

It’s a good idea to carry an emergency kit with you at all times. This should contain a weather radio, a map, a first aid kit, a cell phone with emergency numbers, and multiple flashlights.

Nothing ruins your trip quicker than injuring yourself, or getting sick. Make sure that you have the peace of mind that an injury will not cause a major financial strain.
