The rescueME EPIRB1 the world's most compact Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon, featuring a ground breaking 30% reduction in size compared to other EPIRBs, the Category/Class 3 rescueME EPIRB1 provides the boat's essential link to emergency services within the most easily accessible and convenient EPIRB available on the market. The rescueME EPIRB1 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 EPIRB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.
