In an extreme situation, it is vitally important for you to be able to send signals clearly visible on the ground to rescue teams, as well as aircraft engaged in rescue operations. You need to work out the signaling system in advance so that you can learn how to use it well and be able to signal in the shortest amount of time. Even with a radio transmitter and flares, remember that smoke or fire is the best way to get the attention of a rescue helicopter or aircraft. Three bonfires or three smoke pillars are an international distress signal.

MEANS FOR SUBMITTING INDUSTRIAL SIGNALS. If you have survived a plane crash or are on a liferaft, you should have at your disposal one or even several industrially made torches for signaling. If you are a tourist, it is strongly recommended that you stock up on some of the items listed below in advance:

GPS-TRACKER - allows you to track your position in real time and will help you with maximum speed.

RECEIVER (“Walkie-talkie”) - can transmit and receive both tonal signals and voice signals.

RADIO BEACON - transmits only a tone signal.

RADIO STATION - a radio for use in extreme situations, as a rule, has a radius of action within the line of sight, and therefore it is best to use them on level ground, without natural obstacles.

SIGNAL TORCHES - torches for daytime use emit bright color smoke, for nighttime use they give very bright light, visible at a great distance.

SIGNAL ROCKETS - help to overcome the problems associated with the abundance of natural obstacles when giving signals, as well as problems associated with weather conditions.

TRACING Slugs. If you have firearms tracing bullets FIRED UP, ESPECIALLY IN THE DARK DAY, are a great marker of your location. DO NOT point the gun at the rescue helicopter !!!

MARINE MARKER - a tube with a fine powder that stains water when it enters it in a saturated green or orange color.

"PEACEFUL FEATURES" - markers made of rubberized nylon, having a color-saturated color - blue on one side and yellow on the other.

MEANS FOR SUBMITTING LIGHT SIGNALS: light from an electric torch or even the light of a lighter can be seen at a great distance.

WHISTLE is a very useful thing to sound.

SIGNAL MIRROR - the light "bunny" from the mirror is visible at a distance of up to 60 km with good visibility. As an impromptu mirror, chocolate foil is great.

SMOKE. In the daytime, smoke will be very noticeable over long distances. It is necessary to stack several smoke signal fires, cover them from the weather and keep them in constant readiness for instant action. Try to make the smoke from the signal fire different in color from the color of the surrounding area. If you put fresh foliage, moss or a damp tree in a bonfire, you get white smoke. Rubber or oiled rags laid in a bonfire will produce black smoke.

In order to build a smoke generator, put down a large bonfire - a “hut” (see the chapter on types of bonfires), which is distinguished by good traction and a high burning temperature, necessary to ignite even damp foliage. Place smoke-emitting materials on top of the fire and light the fire when the rescue plane or helicopter is in close proximity to you. If you are in a snowy area or on ice, the bonfire should be laid out on a flat elevation, above the wet ground, otherwise the snow under the bonfire will begin to melt.

Breeding signal fires

Learn from the UK Special Aviation Services experience regarding the best location and methods for making signal fires. Remember everything the first time - you may not have a second chance!

• Always have a piece of rubber, green foliage or lubricating oil on hand to build a fire-smoke generator.

• Around the signal fire, surrounded by vegetation or trees, build a ground roller.

• The signal fire should be built in an open area - in a dense forest, the crowns can completely hide the smoke from the fire.

• If you are by the river, lake or other body of water, it is best to make a bonfire on a raft and place it on a leash on the surface of the water.

Figure 65 shows some international visual distress signals. Learn them or always have with you a piece of paper where they are drawn and their meaning is painted. When laying them out on the ground, make them as large as possible, at least 10 m long and 3 m wide. At night, dig a groove in the ground according to the waveform, fill it with gas and set it on fire. Such a signal will be clearly visible not only at night, but also during the day, on charred ground.

After the arrival of salvation, you must destroy the signals - otherwise they will remain in place when they are no longer needed. They may be noticed by another search aircraft and attempt to land nearby.

Morse code. You can send messages by turning the warning light on and off using Morse code. For the same purpose, you can use the flag - a stick with a bright rag on the end. The point in this case is indicated by a go-ahead to the right with a figure of eight at the end, and a dash by a go-ahead to the left with a figure of eight at the end. You can submit both sound and radio signals in Morse code.

MESSAGES BY GESTURES. In fig. 67 some gestures are presented, using which you can send messages to the pilot of the aircraft that noticed you. For positive and negative answers, it is recommended to wave off a flag or a piece of matter. Pay special attention to the cases in which the frontal one is used, and in which the sidestand, as well as the position of the legs. When giving signals with gestures, do them clearly and passionately (remember that you are being watched from a long distance from an aircraft).

If you understand your message on an airplane, it will flap its wings in the daytime or blink a green air navigation light in the dark. If the pilot did not understand you, he will circle over you in the daytime or blink red air navigation lights at night. When the pilot sees and understands your message, you can convey the following. Be patient, and the pilot of the rescue plane will understand you.

Survival in extreme situations. SAS Experience

SHADOW SIGNALS can be very effective, you just need to build them correctly. Build them in an open area, large enough so that they contrast with the surrounding landscape. To build shadow signals in different areas, use the following rules:

In the POLAR WINTER, build a wall of snow blocks along the groove from which these blocks were removed.

In the ARCTIC SUMMER, the wall must be built of stones, earth, boulders and forests.

IN WINTER, IN A WARM BELT, place green leaves or spruce branches in the snow, place around the palisade branches.

Signaling using natural materials

If you are in distress far from civilization, use the advice of the American army on how to build signal objects from improvised materials.

• Build shafts from chopped vegetation or snow that cast a shadow.

• In snowy terrain, draw letters or symbols with grooves in the snow and fill the grooves with contrasting material — for example, dye, twigs, branches.

• On sand, letters and symbols can be laid out with sand rolls, vegetation or algae.

• In the area overgrown with shrubs, you can depict the symbol of a glade in the vegetation.

• In the tundra zone, trim the topsoil and turn it upside down.

• In any area, use material that contrasts in color with the surrounding area to visualize the signals so that it is clearly visible from the airplane.

HELP WANTED. In order to give this signal, use the following sound and light methods:

• Red rocket.

• Sound signal - six quickly transmitted points. Repeat at intervals of one minute.

• Flashing light - six quickly transmitted short flashes. Repeat at intervals of one minute.

YOU UNDERSTAND. Use the following sound and light methods to emit this signal:

• White rocket.

• Sound signal - three quickly transmitted points. Repeat at intervals of one minute.

Survival in extreme situations. SAS Experience

• Flashing light - three fast-transmitted short flashes. Repeat at intervals of one minute.

RETURN TO THE BASE. Use the following sound and light methods to emit this signal:

• Green rocket.

• Sound signal - a long series of dots.

• Flashing light - a long series of short flashes.

INFORMATION SIGNALS. They are used when it is necessary to leave the disaster zone in which you or your camp fell. Always leave a clearly visible sign - an arrow indicating the direction in which you have moved, and also mark your tracks.

Rescue operations
Once the rescue service has established your location, the rescue operation begins. In land rescue operations, as a rule, helicopters and airplanes are used, in the maritime - ships and boats. If you are able, try to prepare the site for the rescue operation; take into account weather conditions and terrain features. Try to avoid high cliffs and cliffs, overhanging cornices and steep hillsides.

HELICOPTER RESCUE OPERATION. Helicopters can carry out rescue operations both from the hovering mode and landing. Usually landing is required at higher elevations when the helicopter does not have enough power to hang. Lifting victims using a hoist from a hovering mode is the most common during rescue operations at sea. If the helicopter has landed, do not approach it from behind - firstly, this is a dead zone for the helicopter crew to see, and secondly, you can get under the steering screw. Also beware of the rotor blades, especially if you are approaching a helicopter, going down the slope. Pay attention to all foreign objects on the ground and to you, which can be sucked in by helicopter screws. This is especially true for parachutes and tents. Remove all of these items, as well as foliage and twigs from the area of ​​the intended helicopter landing in advance.

It is best to mark the landing site for the helicopter with a capital letter “H” at least three meters high, but remember that the material with which you mark the landing site must be firmly fixed.

If you are in a sandy area, if possible, water the landing site with water in order to nail dust.

In snowy terrain, trample the landing pad as densely as possible - wet heavy snow can stick to the helicopter landing gear, and dry and shallow ones will be lifted into the air and limit the visibility of the pilots.

If you decide to be lifted aboard a helicopter using a rescue winch, when lowering a rescue arbor or a lounge, let it touch the ground first - all aircraft in flight accumulate a lot of static electricity, and it must be discharged into the ground before you touch the arbor ( lounges) and a cable. Sit in the gazebo or saddle the lounge, and then command the winch operator by lifting your thumbs up. No longer give any signals and do not move your hands at all - otherwise you may slip out of the lounge.

As soon as you are pulled into the helicopter door, let the winch operator disconnect it and obey it implicitly. When you are released from a life-saving projectile, they will tell you where to sit. Sit down immediately where you are told and buckle up. Follow all helicopter crew orders throughout the flight. After landing the helicopter it is allowed to leave only after the screws stop. In this case also obey the helicopter crew.
