State Police & Fire Safety Series #4: Camping

(Michigan State Police, June 30, 2018)

Michiganders and visitors alike are urged to make safety a top priority in all seasonal activities while enjoying Pure Michigan at home or on the road. Summer safety tips from Michigan State Police Director Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue and State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer will help ensure we have a great time and stay safe. Common sense, a watchful eye on the kids, and ongoing vigilance in every activity will help you and the entire family have fun and avoid potential mishaps or worse, tragedies.


-Never use fuel-burning equipment such as gas stoves, heaters, lanterns, and charcoal grills inside a tent, camper, or other enclosed shelter to avoid risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

-Campfires, fire pits — always keep a bucket of water or fire extinguisher nearby.

-Protect against mosquitoes, ticks, insect bites as they carry disease.

-Protect against sunburn. Keep covered up and lathered up with a high SPF sunscreen.

-Pack an emergency kit.
