Some basic survival techniques include:
- minimise movements to conserve energy
- keep under shelter or in the shade
- keep the fire going
- listen carefully for voices, shouts, whistles, engine noises, etc.
- give audible or visible distress signals—three consecutive signals regularly spaced and at regular intervals and use shouts, whistles, bangs, flashes of a torch or mirror, distinctive waving of bright clothing or smoke signals.
