+sonatellas Posted January 5, 2008 Share Posted January 5, 2008 As we walk on Dartmoor on a very regular basis we have been thinking of our safety and being a bit more careful when out and about. We looked on the Dartmoor Rescue website and there is some very very useful advice on there. Dartmoor Rescue Group We do carry everything we need for any incidents we might come across but I did not know that there is a distress signal for you to use on your whistle. Sorry for all you people who already know this information but I am going to let others who don't know what to do. If you already know then shut your eyes now. If you are in distress on the Moors you should blow into your emergency whistle, six blasts every minute. This is the recognised distress signal. If you do not have a whistle you can flash your torch six times every minute. The Dartmoor Rescue Group will respond with a horn or torch 3 times per minute back to you. Gosh I hope I am making sense. If not go to the link above and read it. You never know when you might need it or find someone else you needs you. What a good bit of info. Quote Link to comment
