Promoting Wilderness Safety for Camps
On March 15, 2018, COMMSAR exhibited at a major Camp Expo in Brooklyn New York representing dozens of summer camps in the Catskill Mountains and beyond. The purpose of exhibiting was to educate camp outdoor program directors in the importance of safety prevention. We gave out hiking pre-plan packets, along with many brochures on important topics such as tick and Lyme disease, heatstroke, general outdoor etiquette, and the like. We partnered up with regional and national organizations such as the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, National Forest Foundation, among others. Our awareness campaign was well-received and praised. At COMMSAR we are very committed to preventative SAR and community education.
