The rescueME EPIRB1 provides peace of mind with an impressive 10 year battery life. The world’s most compact EPIRB can always be on hand, as its small size allows it to be easily retained within its quick release bracket or placed in an emergency grab-bag or life raft.

A simple protective tab over the operating keys prevents inadvertent activation, yet allows for easy operation when required. The rescueME EPIRB1 also features two high brightness strobes to maximise visibility in low light conditions.

The retractable antenna provides maximum protection and a reduced outline for stowage. When required the antenna is easily deployed with a gentle pull.

When activated, the EPIRB 1 transmits a distress signal on the 406 MHz satellite frequency, which is monitored by search and rescue satellites around the world. The signal includes your location information, which allows search and rescue teams to quickly locate you. The Ocean Signal EPIRB 1 is a valuable safety device for anyone who spends time on the water. It can provide peace of mind knowing that you have a way to call for help in an emergency.
