Hiking safety

I have been reading as well as watching news broadcasts about the many hikers who have been lost recently.

In a recent issue of the Signal you listed what one should take when hiking.

I would like to add one item to the list. That item is a whistle.

It is small, inexpensive, and very possibly could help searchers find lost hikers much sooner. It can act as a loud signal for anyone searching for a lost hiker.

This is not my original idea but one shown in a film on hiking safety shown in a California State Park.

I think this is a good suggestion to pass on to all hikers of all ages.

Thanks for listening.
