Camping Safety 101
Heading into the great outdoors with the whole family is one of the best ways to enjoy the end of summer. Before you head out, it is important to make sure that you know how to stay safe. Keep these camping safety tips in mind to make sure that you can safely and fully enjoy your vacation.
- Lock it up â€“ locking any valuables in your car rather than in your tent can help to keep them much safer. Make sure that they are out of the way and not visible to prevent someone from breaking into your car to steal your belongings.
- Install an alarm â€“ there are many different types of alarms that are available that will help to keep you safe. These alarms will sound off anyone, no matter if they are two legged or four legged and trying to get into your campsite. Keep in mind that an alarm will only annoy your neighbors if it goes off while you are away on a hike.
- Do your research â€“ before you choose a campsite, make sure to do your research. Look at various sites, as well as any issues that the site may have recently faced that can mean serious issues while you are camping.
- Know what you have â€“ make a checklist of items that you are packing, and bring it with you to the campsite. You will want to know exactly what you brought with you on your trip so that you know how much you have to pack back up on your way out.
- Look out for animals â€“ while there are few sights more beautiful than seeing wild animals in their natural habitat, keep in mind that they are wild. Stay away and never approach a wild animal to ensure that you stay safe.
