Description

The world's smallest PLB. So much power, so dependable. The Ocean Signal RescueME PLB 1has long been a favourite of hikers, mountaineers, rock climbers, trail runners and adventurers since its release. It's size would be the the initial attraction, however the technology built in to it to make it the most trusted way to get a signal out ultimately wins. There are three levels of redundancy built in as it contacts two different satellite systems as well as emitting direct radio signals to rescuers. 

 

What Ocean Signal Have To Say About the RescueME PLB1

Wherever you are, at sea, on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that global emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.

The rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognised worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this is funded by governments there are NO CHARGES to use this service.

When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services nearest to your are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location to assist prompt rescue.

The rescueME PLB1 is provided with a flotation pouch to fit the PLB into to enable it to float.  Please note that the PLB will not float in an operating position in the pouch.  Please ensure the PLB is firmly attached to the pouch with the provided lanyard, using suitable self locking knots.
