It’s been an incredibly difficult week for America — one filled with violence and heartache.

Summer is full of outdoor recreation opportunities, from hiking and camping to swimming and fishing; there’s something for everyone to enjoy. However beautiful our outdoor scenery may be, it can turn ugly and dangerous quickly, so we urge everyone to exercise caution and be prepared for any emergencies that could occur.
