Here are some tips on what to do if you are in such a situation – lost in the jungle.
To be lost simply means you are all alone and you cannot see or hear your friends anywhere. Your first reaction is do not panic.
Apply the S.T.O.P approach — Stop, Think, Observe and Plan.
STOP – Take a deep breath, sit down if possible, calm yourself and recognise that whatever has happened to get you here cannot be undone. You are now in a survival situation and that requires you to:
THINK – Your most important asset is your brain. Use it! Don’t panic! Move with deliberate care. Take no action, even a step forward, until you have thought it through.
OBSERVE – Take a look around you. Assess your situation and options. Take stock of your supplies, equipment and surroundings.
PLAN – Prioritize your immediate needs and develop a plan to systematically deal with the emergency. Make a plan and keep to it. Adjust your plan only as necessary to deal with changing circumstances.
– In most cases, the priority should be:
– Find or make a shelter against the weather.
– Build a fire for heat.
– Signal to attract attention.
– Find water.
