The Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 Personal Locator Beacon alerts global emergency services if ever needed wherever your outdoor adventures take you on land or at sea. There are no monthly charges to use the service. The rescueME Personal Locator Beacon functions through the only recognized worldwide satellite network dedicated to search and rescue, operated by Cospas SARSAT (Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided tracking). This rescue satellite network is funded and coordinated by numerous countries, public agencies, and the private sector.
A single hand opens the simple spring loaded flap to reach the activation button on the Ocean Signal rescueME PLB device. Depressing the button sends a distress message to the appropriate search and rescue authorities, regardless of where you are, in any weather conditions, and at any time 365 days a year. The rescueME PLB1 transmits your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link, which promptly notifies rescue services nearest your position and continually informs them of your current location.
The Ocean Signal PLB1 (for a price less than the most cell phones) is your best bet to contact the outside world where a cellular phone signal is weak or non-existent. Hopefully, you'll never be in need of rescue during a challenging situation. If you're an outdoor adventurer, an Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 Personal Locator Beacon provides reassurance that global rescue services can be there for you at the press of a button.
