How to stay safe when camping
Camping is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, and can be a much cheaper way of enjoying a holiday with friends and loved ones, whilst still getting to see new things and visit new places. There is no reason that camping need be any more dangerous than staying in a hotel for a week, as long as you know what you are doing, and the appropriate safety precautions to take. Here are some ways in which you can take care of yourself when camping, and what to do if you do get into trouble and need to make a no-win, no-fee* in Dungannon claim.
- Stay close to civilisation. It is best to choose designated camping areas, or at least camping spots which are close to towns and cities, so that if you do get into trouble you will be able to get help easily. You will find it easier to get food and medical supplies if you are just a short walk away from town, and are less at risk from dangerous animals.
- Learn basic survival skills. Learn first aid, how to start a fire and what to do if the temperature drops suddenly, so that you are always prepared for any eventuality. Basic survival skills will hold you in good stead throughout your trip and help you to have a more comfortable camping experience, as well as deal with any difficult situations as soon as they happen.
- Research the area. Don’t just set up camp in an area that you know nothing about, and decide to explore to find out more. It is far safer to research each area where you intend to stay before you head there, so that you know what the hazards are and how to prevent yourself falling victim to them. Not only this, but you will have a much better time if you know what you are looking out for and what you want to go and see.
