Field Equipment

There are three sources for field equipment:

All field equipment must be checked before heading out into the field

Check the tents, camp stoves, lanterns, flashlights, sleeping bags and any other equipment before you use them. Purchase new batteries and camp fuel yearly instead of relying on old supplies. Equipment can be stored within the department with the exception of flammable fuels. They cannot be stored inside of any University buildings, not even in a flammable cabinet. Any items that use propane or gasoline must be stored without any fuel in them. Drain and air dry items before putting them in storage.

Storage of Flammable Fuels:

Flammable fuels (gasoline, butane, propane) can only be stored on South Campus near the Vehicle Pool Building, Cage #2. Keys can be signed out from Room 1-26 ESB. The cage is available from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm weekdays. Vehicle Pool locks the compound after hours and on weekends so you need to organize retrieve your fuel for field work within that time frame. Make sure you label your fuels with the PI’s name and department.
