Unfortunately, you can't. In 2016 on the territory of the Braslav district there were 4 registered thefts of citizens' property while their rest in the tourist camp. To keep your property safe you should:
- not left your boat with the installed engine and fishing lines on the shore of the lake out of sight for a long time;
- even if you are going to sleep far away from the shore line (in a tent or a car), it doesnt mean that you will hear somebody is trying to steal your boat, motor or other stuff;
- pull the boat out of the water completely on the shore, because sometimes (rather often, actually) boats are dragged into the middle of the lake by waves.
You should go to the Braslav Central Hospital to the adress Sovetskaya street, 138 (GPS: 55.642087, 27.020113). in case of necessity of calling the ambulance, call 103.
If you are in forest during thunderstorm, keep away from separately standing high trees, do not place yourself near the fire because the column of hot air is a good electricity conductor. More often the lightning strokes in oaks, poplars, elms, rarely - in birch and maple.
If your arbor or canopy is located in an open area, do not use it as a shelter.
Place yourself between low growing trees with thick leaves. It is better to seat like "an embryo". Besides, having choosing the shelter, take notice that there are no split trees, early stroked by lightning. It means that soil of the area is of high level of conductivity and new lighning stroke is possible.
On the open area do not stand on elevations, near the power lines and under wires. Seek the hole or ravine and sit there like an "enbryo". If there are no hollows nearby, sit the most closer to the ground or lay down on it. Do not hide in the haystack, in the uninhabited barraks or sheds.
If the thunderstorm caught you near the lake or river, get out of the water, get away from the shore and hide in shelter. If you are in a boat, immediately swim to the shore. The fishing during thundersorm must be ceased.
By no means don't run during thunderstorm. When you are looking for a shelter, avoid those typical breakes on the ground. Specialists call them "the lightning nests": they are the best conductors. You should not gather in groups - in such cases it is better to disperse. You should isolate yourself from the ground, especially if it is wet, having put brenches, clothes and other stuff under yourself. At the same time isolator must be as drier as possible. If near you there is a person, stroke by a lightning, do not be afraid touching him: there will be no charge in him.
