Survival Whistle: The One Piece of Survival Gear You Need to Carry

survival whistle

The Titanic?!?  For some reason, the scene at the end when Rose is floating on the wooden board and hears the rescuers but can’t yell, reminds me of whistles.  Probably because that was the only way she got the rescuers attention!  It was a smart move and one that saved her life.  Yeah, I know it is a movie, but it’s a good illustration of how important it is to have a simple piece of gear like a whistle!

Like many of us know, emergencies can happen at any time and in any place, and it is important to be prepared for them. Whether it is a natural disaster, a medical emergency, or a dangerous situation, having the right tools on hand can make all the difference. The one piece of “inexpensive” gear that is often overlooked is a whistle.

History of Whistles

Whistles have been used for thousands of years for various purposes. The ancient Greeks used them during their Olympic games to signal the start and end of events. In the Middle Ages, whistles were used by shepherds to communicate with their dogs. Whistles were also used on ships as a means of communication between crew members.

In more recent times, whistles have been used in emergency situations. During World War I, soldiers used whistles to signal for help when they were trapped in trenches or injured on the battlefield. Whistles were also used by air raid wardens during World War II to alert people to take cover during bombing raids.

Today, whistles are still used by hikers, campers, and anyone else who is smart enough to carry a whistle and finds themselves in an emergency situation.

Benefits of Carrying a Whistle

Carrying a whistle can provide several benefits for personal safety. One of the main benefits is that it can attract attention in an emergency situation. If you are lost or injured in the wilderness or trapped in a building after a disaster, blowing a whistle can help rescuers locate you more quickly than if you were shouting for help.  It also takes less energy to blow into a whistle than to keep shouting for help over and over again.

Another benefit of carrying a whistle is that it can potentially save lives. In situations where time is of the essence, such as when someone is drowning or having a heart attack, blowing a whistle can alert others to the situation and prompt them to take action.

Different Types of Whistles

There are several different types of whistles available, each with its own pros and cons. Pealess whistles are popular because they do not have a pea inside that can get stuck or clogged with dirt or debris. Electronic whistles are also available, which produce a loud, high-pitched sound without the need for blowing.

However, some people prefer traditional whistles with peas because they produce a distinct sound that can be heard from farther away. It is important to consider the environment in which you will be using the whistle when choosing which type to purchase.

But if you find yourself without a whistle, and you can find yourself a soda can and a pair of scissors or even your knife, you can make this survival whistle.

But you also need to watch the video below on how you can make a traditional willow whistle, just with your bushcraft knife.  This would be a great project to do and it wouldn’t take too long.

How to Use a Whistle in an Emergency

Using a whistle in an emergency situation is simple, just blow.  But there are some ways that you can use a whistle that many recognize as emergency signals.

For example, blowing three short blasts is a universally recognized signal for distress. Someone in an emergency situation could blow three short blasts in succession to indicate that they need help.

Blowing one long blast can help to pinpoint your location and signal your location to rescuers.

Going back to the reference from the Titanic, blowing short bursts can be used to attract attention, particularly in noisy or windy conditions.  This is what Rose did in the end scene. “Jack, I’ll never let go…but I have to blow a whistle now in short bursts.”

Lastly, you can use a whistle to blow a distress signal. This would include blowing the universal signal for SOS, three short, three long, three short blasts.

When you use a whistle in an emergency situation where you are hoping someone comes to your rescue, you should blow and then wait to hear if there is any response.  This will help conserve your energy and listen for any communication from rescuers if they are near.  

Tips for Choosing the Right Whistle

When choosing a whistle, there are several factors to consider. The volume of the whistle is important, as you want it to be loud enough to attract attention but not so loud that it hurts your ears. The durability of the whistle is also important, as you want it to be able to withstand rough handling and exposure to the elements.

It is also important to consider personal preferences when choosing a whistle. Some people prefer pealess whistles because they are easier to clean and maintain, while others prefer traditional whistles with peas because they produce a distinct sound.

You can find some whistles on Amazon that claim that they are super loud like the Hyperwhistle and the Storm Safety Whistle.  Some are sold as survival whistles like the Tacray Survival Whistle.  My personal favorite is the traditional whistle your gym teacher might have used.

Preparedness Application

Incorporating a survival whistle into your preps is a simple thing that would pay-off big time in an emergency. What should you do about it?

  1. Decide what type of whistle would be better for you and your loved ones to carry.
  2. Purchase several whistles to place in strategic areas, your vehicle, key ring, bugout bag, purse or EDC kit.
  3. Practice using your whistle so you can gauge how much to blow into it to get the loudness you are looking for.

Conclusion: Don’t Leave Home Without It

Carrying a whistle is a simple but effective way to increase your chances of survival in an emergency situation. Whether you are hiking in the wilderness or living in an area prone to natural disasters, having a whistle on hand can help rescuers locate you more quickly and potentially save your life. It is a commonsense preparedness move that everyone should make!

Water for Survival – What Happens When Your Water Storage Runs Out?

water for survival

When I was around 11 years old, the family had a big reunion in Mexico.  I have some distant relatives who own a really big orange plantation about 2 ½ or 3 hours outside of Monterrey Mexico.  The reunion was great.  It was at a great location.  We met distant family that we really never knew.  And we had a lot of food and a lot of fun. 

We stayed late in the night, so family members made reservations at this rural motel. Now think about the kind of motels that you might find in a rural setting.  I’m not talking about chain hotels or motels, like Motel 6.  I’m talking about going through rural America and you see an independent motel and it just seems like a little hole in the wall.  Most people would think to themselves, “I’m not gonna stay there!”

Now, think about a rural motel in Mexico! 

Obviously, it wasn’t what you’re used to when you think about staying in a motel or a hotel.  It had two beds, but I would have rather been camping with my own gear!

One of the first things we noticed were the signs in the restroom.  You had to know Spanish.  These helpful signs weren’t written in English.  The signs said, “don’t use the water, there are parasites in the water!”

Your Water Source Matters!

What the heck!  Who has to deal with this type of thing?

When we visited Mexico, we never really would drink the water anyway.  But this took it to another level!  You don’t really want to take a shower or brush your teeth with parasites!

So we slept that evening and at the first sign of daylight, we were out of there!

We don’t deal with parasites in the water where we live!  We’re very used to going to the faucet,  turning it on and having all the water that we want.  But it’s going to be a different story if there ever is an emergency where water is not available to us.

Think about water boil notices.  Some communities dealt with that in Houston during Winter Storm Yuri.  But even at that, it’s very rare.  And even when that happens to us, most people just  go to the store and get water.  And, if it is needed, companies rally to bring water in so everybody has enough water.  

But in an emergency situation, that’s not going to be the case!

Water Storage Is Vital!

As preparedness minded people, we know the importance of having water storage and having multiple ways to make water potable.  This article isn’t about the need to store more water or get another piece of gear.

The question that I would like to ask is what are you going to do when you run out of water and you can’t simply turn on the faucet or go to the store?  What water source do you have around you that you can access to keep you and your family hydrated, healthy and clean?

Those of you who have a water well are in decent shape if your well has water and you can get it up the well.  But people in cities and even in the suburbs will have a really rough time.

Where are you going to find water?

There are a few places where you can get water in an emergency situation if you live in a city or the suburbs.  Here are some examples.

  • Use a 4 way sillcock key wrench to access outside water faucets around big buildings, schools and churches.  
  • Drain your hot water heater tank and your toilet flush tank.
  • Use the water in rain barrels in the backyard.

You should still use a water filter in these options.

But the issue with the above examples is that you are talking about a relatively small amount of water that will get used up quickly.  

What do you do if you need to find water for the long term?

This is going to be the dilemma for those living in the cities and suburbs in a true SHTF situation.  It is kind of scary if you think about it.

Retention Ponds and Purifying Water

The suburbs are filled with retention ponds.  Communities put these in as water features, but also to control flooding.  So when the rains come down, the water from yards and streets run-off into these ponds.  This means that the water in these big retention ponds are filled with all sorts of nasty things you don’t want to drink.  Really, this isn’t something you want to put through a Lifestraw to drink!  We are talking about chemicals, oil and possible sewage (in a flood) that will find their way into this pond from your neighbors yards and their vehicles.  

You still might be able to make this water drinkable.  But you would have to do some serious processing if you want to be safe.  I would do multiple levels of pre-filtering, then distilling/boiling and then filtering again.  It takes quite a bit of time and fuel/power to distill or boil.  In a long term emergency situation, this will be a fulltime job for someone.

Another possible way to get water in a long term situation is to use a catchment tarp.  I wrote about this a few years ago and I still think it is relevant.  I mean, it will be my go to during rain if I’m ever in a long term survival situation.

You can see that this is a big topic that really needs a lot of consideration.

In the meantime, you need to be storing water.

The Easiest Entry to Water Storage – Water Bottles

The easiest entry point for everyone is going to be stocking up on cases of bottled water.  One 24 case of 16.9 oz water bottles equals 3.17 gallons of water.  That’s not a ton of water, but it is a start, especially if you have the room in your home to stock-up on cases.  You don’t want to put these cases in a hot garage or shed.  They need to be in a climate controlled environment.

As I’m editing this article, the city of Houston is under a water boil notice because one of the main water plants lost power and their water pressure went under what is safe to deliver clean water to residents.  The issue has lasted more than 24 hours in a city with over 2.28 million people.  Schools were closed and of course, stores ran out of water bottles.

This can happen anywhere nowadays.   You just need the water plant in your area to break down and not be able to get the parts that it needs to be able to repair things and you’re out for a while!  I have a feeling this will happen more and more as infrastructure fails and utility companies focus on making a profit.  

Your Water Collection Needs

As someone in preparedness, you should take the time to do a little math and figure out how much water you have on hand for your family.  The minimum, and I do stress minimum you need is 1 gallon a day per person.  That is only for drinking, cooking and brushing your teeth.  Most people waste more than that with a single flush of the toilet!

After you figure out how much your family needs a day (1 x the amount of family members you have in your household), you should divide the amount of gallons you have on-hand by that number to see how many days you can go.

I can tell you, unless you have a huge water tank in your backyard, you don’t have enough!

You then need to decide how much water you want to have in-case of an emergency.  

But ultimately, you need to think about where and how you will replenish your families supply in a long term scenario.  That’s the one no one wants to think about!

Water Treatment – A True Survival Skill

Water treatment is a true survival skill that everyone should know. It is one of the most important aspects of survival, as water is essential to life. As we already mentioned, water can contain many contaminants that can make it unsafe for human consumption. By learning how to treat water properly, you will be able to ensure that the water you drink is safe and clean. Learning how to treat your water is an invaluable skill and will help keep you alive in an emergency situation.

In a true survival situation, where all that is around is contaminated water, you might have to go through several processes to get drinkable water. But first, let’s understand the difference between water purification and water filtration.

Purification vs Filtration

Many people use water purification and water filtration interchangeably. They are similar in that they make water safe to drink. But they do have their differences.

Water filters remove solid contaminants from water. These contaminants include solids like dirt, sticks and other material. The water usually goes through a medium to remove these solids. In a primitive filter this might be a selection of different sized rocks and sand. In a pinch, you could also filter through a t-shirt or a shemagah (large bandanna). You can also purchase a water filter like the Hydroblu Versaflow that uses many hollow fiber tubes with tiny 0.1 micron holes. The tiny holes in these types of filters help to remove 99.9999% of bacteria like Giardia, E. coli, protozoan cysts and Cryptosporidium.

Watch my video on how you can turn the Hydroblu Versaflow into a family sized filter that will give your family a lot of safe drinking water in an emergency.

Although water filters work well, they don’t filter out viruses and other chemicals. For that, you will need to purify water.

Water purification includes taking questionable water and making it safe water. It is a more thorough process. At the most basic level, boiling water is the desired process for purifying water. This has been done for thousands of years and is still done today.

The problem with boiling is that is takes fuel to get the fire hot enough to boil the water. One alternative is to pasturize water. In my article, WAPI – What Is It and Why Do You Need One, I shared…

“A WAPI is simply a small polycarbonate tube that contains a special wax. A washer or metal weight on the small device keeps the WAPi submerged as it is placed inside a pot of water that is being heated. As the water reaches the point of pasteurization, the wax at the top of the tube melts and moves to the bottom of the tube. Once all the wax is melted and at the bottom of the tube, the water is sufficiently pasteurized and ready to drink.”

Emergency Water Supply

Putting It Altogether for Your Emergency Water Supply

In a true survival situation, when you are living in the city and need water to drink and have to depend on questionable water sources, you will need to incorporate several processes to make sure you have potable water for your family to drink. Here are some steps you might have to take.

  • Gather your water supply. Remember you need one gallon of water per person per day.
  • Pre-filter your water. This will remove the biggest of solids from your raw water.
  • Filter your water through a water filter. Again, remember you are trying to remove as much solids (bacteria) as possible.
  • Use a wapi to pasteurize and treat your water.

The above process will take time. In a survival scenario, it might be a full-time job depending on how many people you have in your group.

Other Methods of Water Purification

There are other methods of water purification that I haven’t mentioned here. Some of these include chemical, reverse-osmosis, distillation and the use of ultra-violet lights. However, for this article, I focused on what would be more reasonable in a survival situation with limited supplies.

Making Water Safe to Drink

Clean water is essential to our health and well-being. This increases in a survival scenario. The Preparedness Community always highlights that you can only go three days without water. You don’t want to find yourself desperate to find fresh water to drink. It might be real important to your survival to know how to treat the water that is available to you so you and your family have enough drinking water to stay hydrated, for cooking and hygiene.

Survival Uses for a Trash Bag

With a little bit of imagination, a trash bag can be used in many different ways. This is relevant to those who are preparedness minded because an important concept for preppers is redundancy. This article will share 15 plus uses for a trash bag.

Before we get to the list, the type of trash bag that you choose to purchase is important. I personally like the 55 gallon contractor sized trash bags that are thicker than you might use to pick-up leaves. These 55 gallon sized trash bags are the kind that you can put inside a 55 gallon drum if you were using the drum as a trash can. The brand I purchase varies from time to time. I try to find the thickest bag (mil) I can find. You can choose whatever kind you want, but in some of the uses I’m going to share, you will want a thicker, heavier and bigger trash bag. Also, you will want fragrant-free bags. You might want to consider the ToughBag.

“Everyday” Uses for a Trash Bag

Rain Poncho

This one is first because it is the first thing many people think of. No one wants to go through the rain and get soaking wet, especially when you are out and about. A trash bag can easily be turned into a rain poncho to get you dry. The contractor bags are even big enough to go around a backpack. There are a few variations to using a trash bag as a rain poncho that you might want to be aware of.

The first is to cut a hole big enough for your head in the center bottom of the bag. Then, you would cut out holes on the side to let your arms go through. Of course, this doesn’t give you complete protection from getting wet.

The second variation is to cut a hole big enough for your face to see out of one of the corners. This would give you a little pointy-hat effect and cover your head from getting wet. You would then cut the holes in the side of the trash bag.

You might not want to cut holes in the side, but not doing so would mean you wouldn’t have your hands to help catch you if you fell in the rain.

Shoe Protection

Ok. This one might be stretching it for some. But I could see some people wanting to protect their new shoes from walking through a rainstorm. I finally learned my lesson when I worked on the campus because it never failed that we would get a storm when I would wear my new leather shoes. (Elvis’ Blue Suede Shoes is Playing in Your Head Now). I eventually took some old shoes to change into, but if you were in a situation where you didn’t have extra shoes, making some make shift shoe covers would work.

Blocker for Privacy

As you can imagine, there aren’t many “everyday” uses for a trash bag, so this next one is the last. But you might find yourself in a situation where you need to put up a blocker for privacy or even to protect you from elements.

A few years back, I was at a pastor’s meeting at a local restaurant. One of the pastors had their truck broken into. Thieves broke the window looking for a quick buck! He and his wife needed something to cover the window so the glass wouldn’t blow all around as they drove home. Yes, trash bag to the rescue!

And again, you could also use a black trash bag to cover up a window to keep prying eyes from seeing inside.

Survival Uses for a Trash Bag

If you were in an emergency situation, having a few of these 55 gallon sized trash bags would greatly help in your survival. They can handle anything from shelter, keeping warm, water catchment and more.

Shelter

When you cut a contractor size bag on the side and bottom, you will have a nice big sheet of plastic to make a lean-to-shelter. The ToughBag 55-60 Gallon Heavy Duty Trash Bags are 3 mil thick and 38″ x 58″ in size. If you cut the bag along one of the sides and bottom, you would have in effect a 3 mil thick tarp that would basically be sized at 6’x5′ (4′.8″).

You could have an even bigger tarp if you had several of these trash bags in your kit.

This trash bag cut open is as tall as me.

Ground Cover or Mattress

Staying with the emergency situation, another use for a trash bag is to use it as a ground cover or mattress. The important take-away here is that you don’t want to sleep directly on the cold ground. You want to insulate your body and keep it warm.

Using one of the 55 gallon trash bags, you could make a very comfortable (relative to sleeping on the hard cold ground) survival mattress. Stuff your trash bag with dry leaves. The more you stuff your bag, the more comfortable you will be.

Makeshift Bivvy

Because a 55 gallon trash bag is almost 5 feet long, you could get inside of it, feet first, and it would cover up a good portion of most adults. Yes, it’s not perfect, but it will help keep you warm! Remember, we are talking about survival in an emergency situation. I’ve seen people curl up in a big 55 gallon trash bag before. Then again, you could purchase a survival bivvy for your kit. See the pics below for the Survival Frog Tact Bivvy which comes with paratinder and a whistle.

This is a picture of a trash bag used as a bivvy.

Water Collection

With a little bit of creativity, a trash bag could be used for water collection in multiple ways.

The first is to use it to transport water from a river or pond to a camp site. If you have a 3 mil thick bag like the Tough Bag, you will be able to carry more water than your regular trash bag. But you could also use the trash bag to line a dirty bucket or other container, which would allow you to transport more water and keep the water from coming into contact with whatever was in the dirty container.

Next, you could use a trash bag to to help you collect water from trees and leaves by using transpiration. In this use, you would place the trash bag around a limb of a tree with a lot of green leaves and tie it securely. As the sun hits the bag, the water in the leaves will evaporate, hit the top of the bag and run down the sides. You will get a little pool of water at the lowest point of the bag. You won’t get a gallon of water, but this method doesn’t require any work on your part.

Other considerations are that the area where you are doing this should be humid and you should be careful not to do this with a tree that might be poisonous to humans. From Outdoor Life, “The following are toxic when alive or wilted: black locust, yew, cherry, buckeye, horse chestnut, rhododendron and laurel.”

Lastly, you could use your trash bag like a rain collection tarp. I wrote about that in my article, “The Rain Catchment Tarp.” With the dimensions of the trash bag above (6’x5′), you could potentially collect 16 gallons of water per inch of rain. See the article.

Cordage

Preppers should always carry some sort of cordage in their kit. However, in a pinch, strips of a trash bag could be used to make cordage for a shelter or other uses. If you need a stronger cordage, you could twist the trash bag to increase the strength of the cordage. This video below shows you how to do this.

Medical Uses

You should have a first aid kit that you depend on in an emergency situation. But we are talking about a survival situation here. If you are caught without your first aid kit, you could use a trash bag to create a sling, tourniquet or bandage. Again, these first aid uses aren’t ideal, but in an emergency, knowing that you could do this increases your options.

Warming Up Water for Hygiene

If you find yourself in a place where the water is cold and want to warm up some water for hygiene purposes, you could put some water in a trash bag, tie it off and put it in the sun. Some have said that you could poke some holes in the bag and use it as a shower. I wouldn’t do that though. I would keep the integrity of the trash bag for others uses and use the warm water with a bandana or shemagh to wash up with.

Keep Contents Dry

You can use a trash bag inside your bugout bag or pack to keep things dry. This would mean that the trash bag would go in to your pack before anything else, then you would tie it off. This would keep your clothes, food and other items dry if it rained or you fell into some water.

Video: 10 Awesome Uses For Trash Bags

Conclusion

A 55 gallon trash bag is a very versatile item that can come in handy in an emergency situation. And I’m sure you could easily think of other uses for using a trash bag. Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in the comments below. But then purchase some bags so you can put them in your kits.

Peace,

What Fish Can You Get When Bowfishing For Survival? Answers Here!

Bowfishing for Survival

Bowfishing is becoming more popular among survivalists and peppers, combining hunting and fishing skills. It’s a great skill to find food if you master it well!  But what are the type of fish you can expect to catch for consumption when in the waters? Read on as I show you the common fish species one can get when bowfishing for survival! 

Where Can You Bowfish?

You can go bowfishing in various bodies of water as long as they are shallow and transparent. This applies to any type of fresh waters such as lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and streams.

With that said, you can also try to bowfish in saltwater as well, such as in bays, estuaries, and shallow flats. These are “target-rich environments” where there are more fish to catch using bowfishing lights and arrows.

What Can You Bowfish?

While you can bowfish in different bodies of water, that doesn’t mean you can grab any bow and start shooting at random. There are legal factors to consider as well, which depend on the area you’re bowfishing. For instance, bowfishing for game species is not allowed

But for those bowfishing for survival, not to worry. You won’t have any trouble finding fish to catch legally. These are some of the most common fish you can aim for when bowfishing for survival, known for their high populations and ease of catching:

1. Carp

The Carp is the most popular type of rough fish and a favorite among bow-fishermen. One can recognize them with its two pairs of fleshy whiskers, along with the notched dorsal fins. You can find them flourishing in bodies of fresh water such as lakes, rivers, streams, and farm ponds all around the United States. 

The carp is a non-predator fish but a bottom feeder, consuming aquatic plants, plankton, and/or insect larvae. They weigh between four to eight pounds, but you can find them weighing between 15-30 pounds, with commercial fishermen getting carp between 40-60 pounds. It depends on the type of carp species you get. 

The fish’s peak season is in the springtime as the waters warm and spawning begins, with hundreds to thousands of carp bellying their way to shallow waters for the spawn grounds. Any bow-fisherman, no matter beginner or advanced, fishing for survival or fun, can bag a lot of carp at these times! 

2. Gar

One of the other common types of fish (as well as the most challenging and largest) is the Gar. You can easily recognize them with their long beak having a lot of sharp teeth and their slender, cylindrical-shaped body. They also have non-overlapping and tough armor-like scales with a hard bony head and beak structure, making them predators.

Gar would feed on other fish, stalking their prey and capturing it in just one swift lunge when it’s within striking distance. They are great predators, as their strong jaws and teeth would make it almost impossible for their prey to escape. 

These fish prefer to stay in warm and sluggish backwaters from lowland lakes and rivers. You can find Gar sunning themselves silently beneath the water surfaces. They would frequently break the water surface to supplement their oxygen supply, which is why they are a great target for bow-fishermen.

But while they are easy to find and target, prepare to exert a lot of force and to use strong bowfishing arrows. They’re quite the fighter, weighing between five to eight pounds. Some fish species, like the Alligator Gar, can reach up to 100 pounds and ten feet long! 

There are different species of Gar in the United States and others located in southern Canada and Central America.

3. Any Other Fish For Bowfishing

Besides carp and gar, there are also other fish you can try your hand at catching.

Such fish include the:

  • Bowfin
  • Large and small mouth buffalo
  • Suckers (catostomide)

The large and small-mouth buffalo are similar to the carp in terms of its feeding characteristics and habitat. As for the Bowfin, they are aggressive predators and would feed on small fish or crayfish. Like the gar, Bowfins would surface periodically for oxygen, weighing between five to eight pounds. 

However, bowfishing these fish depends on the state you’re from and the body of water your in. You can check the area ahead if you were to go on a camping trip, but when it comes to survival, it’s time to catch any fish you get for food!

Do you want to learn more about bowfishing for survival? This video shows you some tips on catching carp and gar successfully: 

Wrapping It Up

I hope that this article on the fish you can get when bowfishing for survival helped you out! In case you’re out bowfishing for food and survival, you now know how to identify the common fish species to catch.
