In the event that the victims of the disaster decided, without waiting for the help of the rescue teams, to get out to the people on their own, they should mark the place where the accident occurred.

At the same time, a far-visible tour turret is being constructed on the ground in a conspicuous place from stones, pieces of ice, logs.

To facilitate their task in open sections of the route, you should try to leave as many traces as possible, for example, walking not one after another, but with a deployed front. Leaving as many traces as possible makes sense on the surface of linear landmarks accessible for inspection from the air. In the middle of wide glades, on the snowy ice of water bodies.
