Anytime you venture into the wilderness, you should carry a few pieces of chalkideally, those giant sticks of sidewalk chalk. If you happen to get lost, marking your path along the way (on trees and/or rocks) are useful both to ensure you dont wander in circles and to help search and rescue crews track you down. The chalk is environmentally friendly and will eventually wash away. Hopefully, after youve found your way home or been rescued. You can make a super simple, super effective improvised arrow or spear head from an old circuit board. Enough said. Simply plug a wick into a can of Crisco to create a makeshift candle.

Temperatures taken by mouth or in the ear are not accurate in this emergency situation. If a child has stopped breathing, begin rescue breathing . Do not give aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce a high body temperature that can occur with heatstroke. These medicines may cause problems because of the body’s response to heatstroke. If the person is awake and alert enough to swallow, give the person fluids [32 fl oz (1 L) to 64 fl oz (2 L) over 1 to 2 hours] for hydration. Most people with heatstroke have an altered level of consciousness and cannot safely be given fluids to drink. You may have to help. Make sure the person is sitting up enough so that he or she does not choke.
