ASTM WK15283

    New Guide for Guide for Using Whistle Signals During Water Rescue Operations

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F32.02 | Committee F32 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This guide covers the methodology for the use of whistles as a means of communication during water rescue operations. Water rescue operations include water emergencies at lakes, ponds, quarries, ice, river, flood, coastal, and other bodies of water.\t


    Signal; Whistle


    Several years ago the importance of a guide was brought to our attention and now lately with the Florida and Louisiana hurricanes where multiple agencies are responding to these emergencies the timing is relevant.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
