Campfire safety tips to follow while using your Makita camping equipment
Check the outdoor burning restrictions in the area where you intend to camp to determine whether campfires are permitted before you begin your trip.
Determine whether firewood gathering is permitted at the site where you'll be camping. Take firewood if you're not able to gather firewood at your camping site.
Don't light a campfire if high winds develop in your camping area. Blowing embers can start an unintended fire that can get out of control quickly.
Select an area for your campfire that is well away from overhanging branches.
Clear a 10-foot area around your campfire location and dig a pit to house the campfire. Circle the pit with rocks.
Store firewood upwind of the campfire to prevent the extra firewood from catching on fire.
Camping trip food safety guidelines to follow when using your Makita camping equipment
Pack perishable foods in the frozen state or use plenty of ice or cooling capacity to keep perishable foods at safe storage temperatures.
Keep raw meat separate from other foods. Seal raw meat containers adequately to keep them isolated from other foods.
Don't take poultry or meat products if you're not able to keep them at a safe storage temperature for the entire length of your camping trip.
Cook meats thoroughly to prevent exposure to harmful bacteria. Use a food thermometer to cook meats until their internal temperature reaches 160F or the recommended safe temperature for the type of meat that you're cooking.
