PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- Putnam Sheriff Donald B. Smith issued a series of tips to keep residents and visitors to the county safe while enjoying outdoor activities.

  • Wear bright-colored clothing, especially near hunting areas.

  • Preplan your trip. Let someone know where you are going and when you are expected to return.

  • Familiarize yourself with the area you plan to visit, knowing the existing terrain and potential hazards.

  • Always bring water and a fully charged cellular telephone with you.

  • Avoid going alone. Take another person with you so you will have the benefit of the “buddy system”.

  • Plan to return from your activity before darkness falls.

  • Report any suspicious activity to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at (845) 225-4300, the state police or a local police department.

  • Dial 9-1-1 to report any emergency.
