Health Tip: If You're Lost Outdoors

(HealthDay News) -- Preparing for a safe hike outdoors begins with a few pieces of equipment.

The American Hiking Society urges hikers to carry a map, compass and emergency whistle at all times. Furthermore, understanding how to use each item is critical.

Despite preparations, hikers do get lost. If you're lost outdoors, the society encourages you to:

  • Not panic.
  • Locate yourself on a map or retrace your steps.
  • Stay put, if you realize you are genuinely lost.
  • Blow your emergency whistle in bursts of three.
  • Be as visible to rescuers as possible.
