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.

These are pre-programmed to the New Zealand territory, and can be re-programmed to a new territory if you move at a small cost, via an Ocean Signal service centre or through Wild Things.

The rescueME PLB1 is provided with a flotation pouch to fit the PLB into to enable it to float, and have a replaceable battery, via an Ocean Signal service centre or through Wild Things.
