contact should follow one another rapidly and in the above sequence.
Avoid falling on your knees. Drop your chin to your chest and bring
your hands and elbows in front of your head and chest during landing.
After landing, remain calm and begin signaling with your
survival radio. Retrieve the parachute, if possible.
The parachute is an important piece of survival equipment.
Instructions on its many uses are given in TM 10-1670-1, which you
will find in the survival vest or in the log record in the lower back pad of
the parachute harness.
Keep survival kit container (Figure 1-1), cushion, lowering
device and ail kit components intact. The lap belt can be used as a
carrying strap or handle when attached to the RSSK.
Check components in kit, giving priority to signaling devices,
rations, and shelter.
Keep all flight clothing for protection against the weather.
Always dress for the environment you are operating in.
