Staying Found!

  • Stop!, Stay put.  Help is on the way, and your chances of being found are much better if you stay in one place.

  • Think! Gather your thoughts and evaluate the situation.  You won’t get into trouble for being lost, and you must not hide from searchers.  

  • Stay Calm. Observe your surroundings.  Make yourself visible.  Use bright clothing or lay out a rock SOS.  

  • Listen for searchers; periodically use your whistle.  

  • Build a small fire and vegetation to make smoke.  

  • Reflect light with a mirror.  

  • Look for nearby food and water (Don’t eat anything unfamiliar to you).

  • Plan for your safety.  

  • Inventory what you have and how you can use it.  Plan how to stay out of the wind, keep dry, and insulate yourself from the ground.  

  • Build a small shelter.  

  • Purify and drink lots of water.
