Sometimes you may not have access to wood, paper, or any other material necessary to start a fire. If not, while you're waiting to be rescued:

  • Limit your physical activity to conserve energy. Sweating unnecessarily dampens your inner clothing and makes you feel colder.
  • Seek shelter from the wind and cold.
  • Don't rest for long on rocks, the ground, or other cold surfaces.
  • Wrap your body in a thermal foil blanket. This maintains a temperature of 60° F (16° C) inside the wrap, even when the outside temperature is -10° F (-23° C).
  • Conserve your resources and use them wisely.
  • Learn detailed winter survival tips from scout organizations, public libraries, camping goods stores, and the Internet.
