Even with the best precautions, accidents and injuries do happen. Be prepared if they do.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Carry a walking stick to help balance yourself and to checking for better footing. Never step somewhere that you can’t see.
- Pack and carry a First Aid kit.
- Before each trip, replace what is missing from your First Aid kit and check expiration dates on all medications.
