Refreshing your memory...
Survival kit supplies: Even in the summer, a jacket with a hood, nonperishable food, water, lighter (parents should decide if a child is old enough to carry this), a whistle, ziplock baggie, bright colored flagging tape, black trash bag, foiled covered cardboard for a signal mirror.
If you think you are lost, Stay where you are, close to a road or trail if possible.
Tell someone where you are going. DO NOT rely on cellphones(or family radios)!
Make sure your children know that it is okay to talk to strangers when they are lost, especially if they are calling their name. Tell them not to hide! If a person is dressed like a search and rescue person (helmet, headlamps, whistles, backpacks, etc), they are looking for you. Find shelter and make a little spot to rest in.
Learn to make a snow angel (even in the summer) so an aircraft can spot you easier.
The sound of a whistle is louder than your voice. Use it often esp. if you hear people.
Stay warm and dry. Drink water as often as you can. STAY PUT!!!
The wilderness is fun! It's an exciting area with lots of places to explore.
