No matter where you are planning on flying to, having a locator beacon is crucial. This is because you need to be prepared for the worst while hoping for the best. If you have a personal locator beacon on you in case of an emergency, you will be able to be seen even in treacherous conditions. Not only that, but it is also essential to be safe rather than sorry.
If you require a personal locator beacon, Life Raft Store has got your back! Our team carries a full line of Personal Locator Beacons by ACR. Life Raft Store's inventory ranges from the small Resqlink 2880 and 2881 to the full-featured Aqualink View. We have got a locator beacon for everyone!
Importance of Personal Locator Beacons
Personal Locator Beacons save lives and work the same as the Larger EPIRBS. The only difference lies in manual activation versus auto-activation. However, how does this occur? It is pretty simple. The beacon can transmit a 406 MHz distress frequency that can be heard by the nearest rescue crews. When this distress signal is triggered, the crews can locate where you are. Without this signal, it would be difficult for them to find you, potentially resulting in disaster.
Each PLB is GPS enabled to ensure accurate location reporting to First Responders in case of activation. Whether you're 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. Satellite Phones need to have coverage. Cell phones can run out of range or be offline due to bad weather. Still, a PLB signals the NOAA satellites in orbit and reports your unique serial number to the NOAA agency. As a result, they report the signal to the local responder in the signal's local area.
Nobody thinks they are going to get into an accident, but everyone should be ready. If you are looking for a locator beacon to add to your safety gear collection, give Life Raft Store a call today!
PLB Batteries will last 24 hrs and can be available for up to five years between batteries. Not only that, but these beacons can work in any weather, particularly stormy waters. If you want to make sure you are safe and secure in a dangerous situation, consider a PLB locator beacon.
