Course Outline

  • If you can't continue on your outing and have to wait for rescue, prepare help signals as soon as possible.
  • The international emergency sign for distress is three of any signal:
    • Three fires evenly spaced
    • Three blasts on a whistle
    • Three flashes with a mirror
  • If you're near an open space, walk a large X in the grass, sand, or snow. If possible, outline it with rocks or branches. Do whatever you can to make it easier to see from a distance.
