The rescueME EPIRB1 provides peace of mind with a 10 year battery life.The world’s most compact EPIRB can always be on hand, as its small size allows it to be easily retained within its quick release bracket or placed in an emergency grab-bag or life raft
This EPIRB is pre-programmed for registration with the US country code and must be registered to a vessel with a US MMSI number. Whilst it will function, the initial point of contact during an emergency situation would be the US Search and Rescue.
If you require registration outside of the US, please purchase our alternative listing for ‘Programmed for Rest of World’. We include at no charge a reprogramming service to ensure the device can be registered in the country of your choice.
Registering your EPIRB is mandatory in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue will know who you are, and contacts provided to supply information about your travels
This EPIRB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search and Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
