Make Summer Camp Safer

If you’re running a summer camp and are looking to make it a safer place for all involved, it’s important to consider how you can do so in advance. Taking a little time at the outset to make camp a safer place for all involved helps everyone have a stress-free summer filled with fun, relaxation and excitement – and not with worry about what could happen in an emergency situation! One of the best ways to prepare for an emergency is to have each camper complete detailed emergency contact and allergy forms, which are stored in both paper and digital format, giving you the flexibility to recall the information either way as the need presents itself. Additionally, establish clear policies on dangerous areas of camp (think the swimming pond, archery areas, and anything involving cooking or fire). As a final point, make an effort to school your staff in basic emergency training (think Advanced Cardiac Life Support Training and Pediatric Emergency Assessment and Recognition). Though they’ll hopefully never have to use the training that they receive, having a staff that’s well-versed in the emergency basics can make a huge difference in a crisis situation.

About the author

I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic...

And too often I would arrive on the scene of someone unconscious, surrounded by a circle of people feeling helpless. Sometimes those people would even have CPR training but lacked the confidence and experience to act.

That’s why I started SureFire CPR. Our classes are practical and engaging – teaching you the crucial skills you need to know what to do and feel empowered to take action.
