ON SITE HAZARDS
The Black Widow Spider and the Brown Recluse Spiders are present in our area, and their bite is serious.
If you are bitten, take the following steps:
- Wash the bite area with soap and water.
- Elevate the area to slow the spread of the venom.
- Tie a snug bandage above the area if the bite is on the arm or leg, to slow the spread of the venom, but do not impair the blood circulation.
- Always seek immediate medical attention.
