Tips for camp safety

Written byAdventor

We often put safety issues in the process of hiking or site selection, but ignore some unsafe factors in the camp:

1. After choosing a safe camp, we need to set up a tent. Many friends set up their tents close together for the convenience of chatting at night or to avoid being lonely or afraid, almost sticking them together. At this time, if you pull on the wind rope, it is easy to trip people at night. If you fall, the consequences are difficult to predict. It is recommended that the tents should not be too close as far as possible, and at least one passway between the two tents should be guaranteed;

2. Keep food away. Simply put, the food outside the tent before going to bed at night is packed and the bag is tightly closed to be received in the tent or hung on a high place. Don't throw it everywhere. The smell of food may attract other animals. The small one may be a fox, and the large one may be a bear. Therefore, it is important to develop good habits;

3. Prepare a knife by your side. The main thing is to put the knife by your side before going to bed. If an accident occurs, you can quickly cut through the tent to escape. It can resist for a while if a beast strikes. In addition, flashlights (headlights) should also be placed by your side. Not only is it convenient to go out at night, but it is also an essential tool for night escape. Trekking poles are placed at hand and can be taken at any time. They are similar to the use of a knife. Uninvited guests can break into the camp;

4. Whether you are in the tent or not, the door of the tent should be closed easily. Mainly to prevent snakes, insects, rats and ants from climbing into the tent when you are away;

5. Get up in the morning, if your shoes are outside, please check carefully before wearing them. To prevent venomous snakes or insects from hiding in the shoes;

6. Try not to use fire or smoke in the tent, please pay attention to using fire. In addition, the cooking area in the camp should also be far away from the tent, and the fire should be extinguished when it is used up. The most important thing is to use the fire safely. If you need to use fire to drive away animals, it’s best to have someone on duty. Everyone knows the truth;

7. Try not to cook or eat in the tent. In the case of bad weather, you must leave vents when cooking in the tent to keep the air circulating in the tent to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. This often happens

8. Do not close the vents of the tent. One can prevent moisture from condensing, and the other is to prevent insufficient oxygen in the tent due to excessive airtightness.
