Course Outline

If you can’t continue and have to wait for rescue, prepare help signals as soon as possible./p>

  • 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. Make each segment of the X at least 18 feet long and three feet wide so that it can be seen easily from the air. Placing branches, logs, or rocks along the X will make it more visible.
