Staying Safe Guide

Work in Progress

This is just a quick guide to staying safe at EMF. It's in no-way comprehensive, but if you're in any doubt, come and chat to one of the first-aiders or drop in to the first-aid post.

If you have any pre-existing conditions or allergies that you think we should know about, drop us an email or come visit us at the first-aid post when you're settled.


Yes, we all like a tipple now and again, but please try to drink sensibly. Keep in mind however that alcohol dehydrates you, so to avoid the nasty hangovers, be sure to drink plenty of water.


Whether you're partaking of the delights of the bar or not, it's important to remain hydrated. Always keep a bottle of water with you. EMF will be providing clean drinking water facilities on-site so keep that water bottle topped up!


The first-aid team are not allowed to hand out any medications except for the over-the-counter variety. If you're on any medication, please make sure you bring enough with you for the duration of your stay. If this medication needs to be stored carefully, feel free to bring it to the first-aid post and we can discuss how best to keep your medication safe.

If you're an asthmatic, please don't forget to bring your inhalers and spare cartridges.

First-aid kits

While there will be a first-aid team and post on-site, you should bring some basic supplies with you... A small travel first-aid kit which includes some plasters and basic supplies will mean you can cover that blister from walking all over the place easily enough.

Sun Protection

Whether the sun is out or not, it's generally a good idea to put some sun-cream on during the summer. UV

It doesn't take much to get severely burned when you're out and about.


Drugs are just as illegal on-site as they are anywhere else. The message here is: don't.

That said, if you do partake and it goes wrong and need help, get yourself to the first-aid post, speak to a steward or first-aider. We're not here to judge and you won't be preached to. It will just be somewhere safe you can stay while the effects wear off - and it's completely confidential.
