Camping Safety Tips

Notice Board 13/04/2017

BE PREPARED
• Be prepared. Always be prepared for the unexpected.
• Before you leave, check the weather report, learn about security at your camp location, and tell family and friends what your plans are.
• Be sure to bring along a supply kit that includes a first aid kit, compass, map, flashlight, blankets, and batteries, food, clothes, and medications.
• Know who to contact at the camp to report issues that may come up.
• When you return home check for ticks, maiden plum, diarrhea and other problems.

WASTE DISPOSAL
Dispose of all trash (diapers included) properly in the proper bins if available. If bins are not available, all trash should be removed and be disposed of at home.
Return the campsite to its original condition for the next camper if you disturb it in any way.
Don’t forget your good recycling habits on vacation. They are just as important camping as they are at home.

GARBAGE DISPOSAL/LITTER CONTROL
Improper garbage disposal and littering are liable to penalties under the Litter Law and the Public Health Law, including a fine of up to $500. Residents should, therefore, avoid such practices. All solid waste products should be properly disposed of.

SANITATION
Human waste should be disposed of in a sanitary manner. Campers should rent a portable toilet or camp at locations with bathroom facilities. Improper disposal of human waste is an offence under the Public Health Law 2002 revision, part III, punishable by fines (up to $1000) and six months’ imprisonment.
