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

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge and the development of standards (classifications, guides, practices, specifications, terminology, and test methods) for search and rescue activities.
The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and outside organizations working in this field to avoid duplication of effort.


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.
