Details

Introducing the world’s smallest PLB.

Wherever you are at sea or on land, the rescueME PLB provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.

The rescueMe PLB 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 are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.

NB: Bogong also hires PLBs
