Mother Nature is not all pretty flowers and warm sunshine. In fact, she can be downright brutal, especially as you hit the road during the winter months. It’s up to you and your vehicle to be prepared for her aggressive onslaught of killer cold, treacherous ice and mounds of unforgiving snow.

Your starting point when assembling your mobile cache of gear, tools and supplies begins with you and your family’s needs. Survival, especially if stranded in sub-zero temperatures for an extended length of time, should be at the top of your priority list. This means that the basics must be considered first, such as warmth, food and water. Without these essentials, your survival clock will only be ticking downward at an alarming and life-threatening rate.

After your personal needs are met, it’s time to think about rescue or getting your vehicle back on the road. Signal flares, fluorescent dyes, smoke grenades and large brightly colored banners or flags all assist in alerting others to your predicament, while jumper cables, a reliable snow shovel and tow ropes can get you moving once again to your destination or the comfort of your own home.

No matter how certain you are that things only happen to the other guy, your world is very unpredictable. What you thought would be a scenic ride through nature’s picturesque glistening snow may turn into a fight to survive as white begins to surround and virtually trap your vehicle.

Survive Outdoors Longer Rescue Howler Whistles


It’s proven that the human scream diminishes very quickly in strength and volume with severe repetition. Don’t strain your voice or overuse energy when this small, effective whistle can do far better. Broadcasting a piercing 110 dB signal, you’ll attract anyone within a mile or so of your location with little effort. Stuck in freezing cold? No worries. The fail-safe design prevents the whistle’s shell from cracking or your lips sticking to the mouthpiece. The howler is a small tool that does wonders when you’re stranded.


• 110 decibel signal can be heard over a mile away

• Heavy-duty unbreakable ABS plastic construction

• Pea-less design won’t freeze or stick to lips in severe cold weather

• Triple-frequency sound cuts through surrounding noise

• Compact design fits easily into packs, pockets or glove compartment
