    Why you should always know where the first aid tent is at a festival

    One of the golden rules of festival survival is to always know where the first aid tent is at a festival. Here is why this is such an important rule.

    Why you should always know where the first aid tent is at a festival

    Large, excited crowds, alcohol consumption and, thanks to the UK’s somewhat unpredictable weather, copious amounts of mud combine to make festival accidents almost inevitable. Knowing where the first aid tent is at a festival is important because it enables you to get help quickly if you should sustain a personal injury.

    Preventing Infections

    Allowing you to take the shortest possible route to the tent (as opposed to wading through mud for ages trying to find it), knowing where the first aid tent is at a festival can also help to prevent mud and the bacteria it contains getting into cuts or grazes and turning an initially minor slip or trip injury into a serious problem by causing an infection.

    Minor injuries

    You may think that in case of a minor trip or slip injury, it may be best to stay put, rather than taking the risk of getting mud into a graze or cut by heading for the first aid tent. There are, however, three good reasons to make sure you get your accidental injury seen to as quickly as possible:

    1. You will be wading through mud sooner or later. Getting your wound cleaned and dressed quickly will reduce the risk of it getting infected.
    2. Sometimes injuries that appeared minor to begin with turn out to be much more serious later. Getting a proper diagnosis and suitable treatment straight away speeds up recovery and prevents development of potentially serious long-term problems.
    3. If you have an accident at a festival and someone else is responsible for causing this accident, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation. Visiting the first aid tent will ensure your injury and any treatment and/or medication you required will be recorded. This record will come in useful as evidence to support your claim.
