Signal Flare Signal flares are a common distress signal at sea although they would probably set a forest on fire, especially in hot, dry, windy weather. And they can be very dangerous if they go off accidently inside of your sports utility vehicle. There are plenty of other safer methods of signaling your whereabouts if you are lost or stranded.

There are several economical signaling methods available including "HELP" signs, signaling mirrors, emergency strobe beacons, common flashlights, and automobile roadside flares and we will cover them in the next few web pages.

With all of the signaling methods presented on the next few pages, we want to emphasize that you should be out in the open where search and rescue aircraft can spot you or your signal. We will emphasize this over and over again.

Warning: Do not depend on your cell phone to call for help when you are off the road. There may not be cell phone sites within range! Learn one or more of these important other methods of signaling that can be used when you are lost or stranded. And we suggest you teach them to your children at an early age.
