Distress signal tips using your Survival Whistle

  • The ‘S.O.S. ‘ Emergency sound signal is three prolonged whistle blasts—then three short blasts—then three prolonged blasts—then pause and repeat.
  • Blowing a whistle 3 times, wait 30 seconds, and repeat is the internationally distress signal.
  • One blast – Where are you?
  • Two blasts –   Used to signal a halt during a sound and light search.
  • Five blasts –   Danger signal (usually shipping)

Blast for help, loudly and hold for approx. 3 seconds. I can personally confirm the Acme Survival Whistle can be heard as far as a mile away. 

*** If you can be heard, you can be found and rescued!!!
