Hunting Health and Safety

Friday November 22, 2019

It’s that time of the year – whether bright orange or camo are your colors, safety needs to be a priority.

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency is providing hunters with a few reminders this fall. “Every year we hear stories about hunters falling, freezing or getting lost,” says Jim Cook, Emergency Preparedness Coordinator at the local health department. “Even if you’ve been an avid hunter for years, read the following tips to remind yourself of just how important it is to stay safe while out this season.”

For non-hunters who are near an area where there are hunters, follow the tips below.
