About the Red Whistle Programme

Canadian Rangers and Junior Canadian Rangers in Ontario wear bright red whistles attached to their clothing and/or equipment to use in case of emergency while out on the land or in the wilderness. This initiative came from 3 CRPG (Canadian Ranger Patrol Group Ontario) as a way to commemorate the millennium and help promote safety awareness at the same time. The theme of "wear the whistle" was heavily promoted along with the Youth Wilderness Safety Program. The idea behind the project is that blowing the whistle can bring help in order to save lives and reduce injuries.

The red whistle is a Fox 40 whistle with a split ring, emblazoned with the Canadian Rangers crest. A 7-minute promotional video and poster featuring "Polar Pete" also accompanied the whistles as they made their way to all patrols throughout Canada. The cost of purchasing and distributing the whistles was covered by a grant from the Government of Canada through its Youth Employment Strategy program.

Today, Fox 40 Pealess Whistles are standard safety equipment for Canadian Rangers and Canadian Junior Rangers.
