[VIDEO] Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) – Rescue Signal Options

On a moonless night, the human eye can barely distinguish shapes and everything is mostly a different shade of black, but they can also spot a lit candle from 30 miles away clearly. That’s why it’s important to carry a way to signal in your Pocket Survival Kit (PSK).

If you don’t, you may wind up like in the stories you’ve often heard of people being found dead in areas where rescuers thought they searched everything. Cache Valley Prepper is back to teach you what you should pack in your PSK so that you don’t end up a cautionary tale for other adventurers and survivalists.

  • I will signal with my shotgun!

    • Thanks for commenting Murphy!

      You bet, there are a lot of signaling options beyond what you can carry in a Pocket Survival Kit, but I have used firearms to signal several times, including for a couple of emergencies, but usually just to locate other party members while hunting.. This was quite common before cellphones and inexpensive radios.

      Just group in shots of three. You can fit more options other layers, such as a Go Bag.

      • Pls speak a little quicker as you are too slow of a talker. You make it hard to listen to your videos. Another alternative is to follow an unseen written script. Unseen by ys. A third option that I see being done is ti include the video within a written article. This gives more choice to the interested prepper in how they want to learn.
