Follow These Simple Tips to Avoid Heat Exhaustion
It’s the middle of July in Central Oregon and many people who have Central Oregon Car Insurance will be driving to their favorite destinations to do things like: stand up paddle boarding, fishing, kayacking, hiking or camping.
If you plan on spending the day outdoors this summer make sure that you follow these simple tips to stay safe this summer.
Leave a Plan Behind
Even if you plan on driving to Sisters, Madras for the day, make sure that you leave a plan of action behind for your family just so they know exactly where you are in case you don’t return from your trip when anticipated.
Many times outdoor enthusiasts get themselves in trouble when their loved ones can’t find them and you can easily avoid this problem by leaving a precise route and plan for your trip behind so your loved ones know how to find you when you’re away.
Bring Plenty of Water
Yes we live in Central Oregon and beer is the drink of choice for many here but water is more important, especially when it’s over 90 degrees outside.
Make sure that you bring your body weight in water so you can replenish that fluid especially after you’ve been sweating all day.
Put the Local Emergency Number in Your Phone
Last of all, but most important, if you’re going to be hiking somewhere in Prineville, fishing at Madras or camping in Redmond, make sure that you put the local emergency numbers in your phone so you can call out for assistance if you have an issue that requires immediate attention.
This tip is especially important since 3G or 4G coverage might not work on your phone if you’re camping or spending the day in a remote Central Oregon location.
