Be Visible - Wear or wave something brightly colored. At night use a flashlight.

Be Noisy - Use a whistle to attract attention.

Stay Calm - Assess your situation before making any decision. Stay calm and positive.

Stay Put - You'll be found more quickly by staying in one place. Make sure to tell someone before the hike of your destination.
