Tuvizo Underscores The Importance Of Hiking Safely With 12 Life-Saving Safety Tips
Recognizing the importance of hiking as a therapeutic and stress-busting activity, Tuvizo, the reflective vest company, recently published its own list of 12 safety tips to help hikers remain safe, enjoy the activity, and get the most health benefits from
The Tuvizo Reflective Running Vest provides high visibility in the day and excellent reflective qualities at night for running, cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits.
Jo Parkes from Tuvizo PR says, "Hiking is a most wonderfully therapeutic exercise, it can soothe many day to day anxieties and stresses. Getting in touch with nature through hiking can be a better treatment for the soul than any visit to a spa. However, hiking destinations are remote and remembering to be safe is extremely important when heading out."
According to Tuvizo's hiking safety article, it really doesn't matter where the hike will be, the rules for hiking safely are universal and based on common sense advice from most experienced hikers.
Hollywood often portrays lone hikers as heroes in many movies but the cardinal rule is never to go hiking alone. The recent Mt. Rainier tragedy where famous wilderness hiking enthusiast and author Karen Sykes got separated from her companion and died of exposure and hypothermia underscores the importance of partnering with a hiking buddy who can provide assistance during an emergency.
The U.S. National Park Service (NPS), in their Wilderness Hiking Safety Tips document also warned hikers to keep their distance from wildlife that they might encounter on the trail. The advice is to stay away from a moose with a calf and to watch out for yellow jacket (wasp) nests near the ground. People who are allergic to bee stings should carry emergency treatment kits during the hike.
Basic safety precautions should also be observed. Apart from wearing basic safety clothing, like a safety vest, the hike should be tailored according to the fitness level of the hiker or their companions. If children are present, the hike path should be carefully chosen to avoid extremely steep and dangerous terrain and dense undergrowth.
"We have drawn up a list of top hiking safety tips to keep you safe out there, so get out and enjoy that hike!" remarked Jo Parkes from Tuvizo PR.
