Safety & Survival Whistles


A survival kit is a package which is put together ahead of time and contains items such as safety whistles that are designed to help people in potentially dangerous situations. Survival kits are usually tailored to the conditions you are expecting; for example, waterproof items are often necessary for wet and aquatic environments and the kit might contain floatation aids such as lifejackets. One thing that is common to the vast majority of emergency kits is the humble survival whistle. Survival whistles are an excellent means of communication which does not depend on a source of electricity and is highly portable.


We have a comprehensive range of safety whistles, any of which will take pride of place in your survival kit. They are small and incredibly lightweight, meaning they can be easily carried in a pocket, on a lanyard, or even attached to your rucksack. Our most popular survival whistles are made from plastic which is resistant to shattering and is comfortable to use in freezing conditions. The majority are airfast, meaning the whistle does not depend on a pea to create a loud, reliable call which again makes them suitable for cold conditions that can cause a pea to become stuck.


Using Your Survival & Safety Whistles In The Field


There are a few signals from a safety whistle that are internationally accepted to mean ‘Help!’ For example, three short, sharp blasts on the whistle signals to others that you are in need of emergency assistance. Try sounding your survival whistle for three seconds and then taking a slow breath or two before sounding the whistle again. Do this in sets of three with a gap between each set. This is one of the best known distress calls, and is an important one to remember when you’re heading out into potentially dangerous settings. Two blasts can be used as a response to call others to your location.


Another widely known signal is the SOS signal based on Morse code. To sound an SOS signal, sound three short calls, three longer calls, and then three more short calls, pause for a few seconds and then repeat the pattern. The short calls should be around 1 second long and aim to make the longer calls around 3 seconds in length. Be persistent. The more consistent your signals from your survival whistle are, the better your chances of attracting assistance.
