Why a whistle for first aid

@reiff. You dont know whether your survival situation will be natural or manmade, wilderness or urban, and sometimes people forget keys.

Why would you need to pick locks?

Just wondering but did you get the "Bear Grylls pocket survival handbook" from Bear's knife, or any other one of his products? Just wondering, I have the same book that came with the "Bear Grylls knife".
