    Whether you're out at sea or hiking in the mountains, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that global emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button. The rescueME PLB1 can be operated with a single hand if necessary. A simple spring-loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

    The Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognized, 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 nearest to your are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location to assist prompt rescue.

    * Important Buoyancy Note: The rescueME PLB1 includes a flotation pouch to allow the device to float. Please note that the PLB will not float in an operating position in the pouch. Please ensure the PLB is firmly attached to the pouch with the lanyard provided, using suitable self-locking knots.
