Ocean Signal RescueMe PLB1

Introducing the world’s smallest PLB

  • 30% smaller by volume
  • Easily fits in lifejacket
  • Retractable Antenna
  • 7 Year Battery Life
  • 7 year warranty
  • High brightness strobe light >1candela
  • 66 channel GPS receiver
  • Unique mounting clip and flotation pouch
Wherever you are at sea or on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button. The rescueMe PLB1 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 Centre via satellite link. Rescue services are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.
