10 choses à avoir dans sa voiture en hiver

Comment bien se préparer pour s’aventurer en forêt? Alors qu’un homme de Mont-Carmel a été retrouvé mort dans le Kamouraska en fin de semaine, quatre jours après sa disparition et celle de ses deux compagnons, voici quelques conseils pour vous assurer que vos escapades en plein air se déroulent en toute sécurité.

La première chose à faire lorsqu’on part en forêt, selon le formateur en recherche et sauvetage Marcel Côté, c’est d’avertir quelqu’un de ce que vous allez faire.

Avertir quelqu’un et laisser de la documentation sur sa sortie, dire où, quand, comment et quand est-ce qu’on prévoit revenir, c’est essentiel. Marcel Côté, formateur en recherche et sauvetage pour l’organisme La Grande-Ourse

Selon Marcel Côté, cette information a une importance capitale lorsque des secours sont appelés et peut permettre d’accélérer les recherches.

Il ajoute que chaque personne qui s’aventure en forêt devrait avoir une trousse de base pour lui permettre de survivre en cas de pépin.

10 ARTICLES À EMPORTER :

  • lampe de poche
  • allumettes
  • sifflet
  • nourriture et eau
  • chapeau ou casquette, imperméable
  • cellulaire, boussole et cartes
  • trousse de premiers soins
  • abri de survie
  • couteau de poche
  • protection solaire

A new products line for SecurMonkey

 

SECURMONKEY Tomio Survival Kit (Black)

Several months after the launch of the SecurMonkey store, we decided to change its vocation recently. From now on, we decided to market mainly survival kits of different types.

This decision was made following comments received by people regarding our shop. Many have suggested that we produce survival kits based on their needs, their physical activities, their temperature, or their means of transportation. So we work to design and produce our own survival kits based on these needs.

Next April, we will launch this range of survival kit. You will be informed of this launch of our new products via our website and Facebook pages.

We’re talking again next April …

How not to be dehydrated in a festival

Summer is a great season to attend outdoor music shows. In many cities across Canada, there are artists of all kinds who entertain audiences during events such as the Festival d’été de Québec, the Calgary Folk Fest, the Ottawa Bluesfest or the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. These activities are often crowded with people.

The importance of hydration

In the heat of summer, in an overwhelming heat and with an imposing crowd, it is important to hydrate well so as not to be a victim of discomfort. During a visit to the installations of the Festival d’été de Québec in 2015, the organizers mentioned that heat-related discomforts were becoming more frequent during their festival. You should be drinking a lot once there.

As the security in each festival is increased, it is no longer possible for spectators to bring their water bottle. Now, the organizers of the festivals opt more for the setting up of stations of water where the festival-goers can drink there.

Often, you will have to queue to drink in the drinking troughs; Which can be unpleasant when the temperature is above 30 degrees Celsius. The risk of heat stroke is present if you do not take the time to drink enough water when it is your turn at the drinking trough.

Long live the silicone gourds!

Fortunately, most festivals accept the use of disposable water bottles (not very environmentally friendly) or silicone bottles. The spectators can fill them at the drinking troughs.

Here are some bottles of silicones that we offer on SecurMonkey’s website:

AONIJIE 250 ml Water Bag (Blue)
AONIJIE 250 ml Water Bag (Blue)

AONIJIE 500 ml Water Bag (Blue)
AONIJIE 500 ml Water Bag (Blue)

NATUREHIKE 500ml Silicone Water Bottle (Blue)
NATUREHIKE 500ml Silicone Water Bottle (Blue)

AONIJIE SD16 1.5 L Water Bag (Blue)
AONIJIE SD16 1.5 L Water Bag (Blue)

Finally

If you are attending a festival this summer on a hot day, your priority not to die of thirst is to bring you a bottle of water. Do not be negligent as you may suffer from heat stroke.
