To ensure you continue to enjoy your adventures this winter we’ve listed some tips to keep you safe and warm outdoors.
- Build a good campfire
- Wear layers
- Keep your camp dry
You’d be surprised how damp your camp can get in the cold. To ensure your belongings stay dry actively try and keep your tent, camper trailer or caravan closed. Sometimes it helps to lay a camping mat under your tent to prevent any moisture from the ground, such as dew drenching it. Try to dry belongings by hanging them in the sun or resting them near your campfire.
With these tips in mind, safety should always be at the forefront of your mind before going camping. Simply preventative measures such as checking the weather, planning ahead and packing the right gear can make a difference in an emergency situation.
To ensure you are ready to provide first aid to potential campfire burns, cuts, infections, sprains or broken bones, make sure you have an up to date first aid kit.
