Stay Safe While Camping This Summer

One of the most wonderful things about living in Northern California is the wealth of beautiful natural resources that surround us, and especially the trees and wilderness on our doorstep. Whether you go north, south, or east, numerous opportunities to spend time outside are available to you. Especially if you are camping in the San Francisco area, it is important to remember some ways to stay safe and prevent a personal injury while outdoors.

Our Advice For Avoiding Camping Accidents

Camping is one of the great ways to enjoy all of the Bay Area's natural beauty, and what better time to do it than the sunny summer months. However, being outdoors also has the potential for serious personal injury. With a little preparation, anyone seeking to enjoy nature can be sure they do not suffer an accident while doing so.

If you are planning on camping, make sure you follow some advice:

  • Make sure there are no prevalent diseases and conditions in the area you are camping that you may need to be vaccinated against.
  • Bring food and water that are not contaminated and keep them safe from developing diseases, such as by packing separately and cooking properly.
  • Bring protective gear for any physical activities you may engage in.
  • Remain away from poisonous plants and animals.
  • Never go hiking or engage in outdoor activities on your own.
  • Keep gas and oil burning equipment away from tents and enclosed shelters and keep ventilated.
  • Never touch, feed, engage with, or pet wild animals.
  • Use bug spray to fight against insect bites and the potential diseases they can carry.
  • Bring equipment and clothing to prevent getting too hot or too cold during the trip.
  • Wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days!
  • Pay careful attention to the water by supervising children, never drinking the water that is swam in, and wearing a life jacket.
  • Always be prepared for the unexpected.

Spending time outside can be fun for the entire family, and with some care and consideration, personal injuries and accidents can be avoided.
