Life Raft Store carries a full line of Personal Locator Beacons by ACR. From the small Resqlink 2880 and 2881 to the full-featured Aqualink View. Personal Locator Beacons have been known to save lives and work the same as the Larger EPIRBS with the only difference of Manual Activation versus auto-activation.
Each PLB is GPS enabled to ensure accurate location reporting to First Responders in case of activation. Whether your hiking, sailing or skiing, the ACR PLB's will save your life in the event of an accident or mishap. For the cost of peace of mind, nothing does a better job of letting the rescue services know you're in trouble. Satelite Phones need to have coverage, Cell phones can run out of range, or be offline due to bad weather, but a PLB signals the NOAA satellites in orbit and reports your unique serial number to the NOAA agency who in turn report the signal to the local responder in the signals local area.
PLB Batteries will last a full 24 hrs and can be stored for up to five years between batteries. Be safe, carry an ACR PLB with you. It may save your life or the life of someone like your family.
