Blow a Fox40 in their direction they'll stop and listen.


In my other volunteer life I'm a soccer referee. I carry a Fox40, but my favorite is a Tornado T-2000.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep

but I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

BSA whistle, old single tone, British dual-tone scout whistle. All work just fine.

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

Work? Sure they work.

Make a noise that gets everyone's attention even in the next country? That's a Fox40. :) There's no. Claiming they didn't hear it.

When I was a youth soccer referee in High School, it was an ACME Thunderer- the one with the metal band that went around your fingers- no lanyard. Now, the Fox 40 is what I usually have clipped to my pack. Not sure what happened to my ACME...

They are still around.

 

Smart to use a pea-less whistle for emergencies. I have one I use for emergencies too. Great whistle. Definitely a loud whistle.

Go to any professionally managed pool or beach and every lifequard will be carrying-and using-a whistle. There is a reason for that. And I don't see lifeguarding a BSA swim event as any different in this respect. I think somebody at National Camp School is still carrying baggage from when they didn't make the lifeguard cut as a teenager.
