All-In-One Peace of Mind - Introducing EPIRB Safety Kits
Posted on April 3, 2018
Boaters carrying one of these survival kits on-board will be equipped with an ACR Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) or Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) operating on the 406 MHz frequency. The beacons can be quickly and easily activated in an emergency to enable the Search and Rescue authorities to identify and locate a boater in distress. The kits also contain a variety of other products including an abandon ship bag, strobe lights, signal mirror and a whistle, to further help rescuers.
Mikele D’Arcangelo, Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Management for ACR Electronics, said: “Our customers can put their trust in the ACR Survival Kits when time is short and no help is in sight. We have developed these kits so that they can offer boaters peace of mind in a bag. When considering the safety of your family and crew, we want to emphasize the importance of investment in premium equipment, particularly a properly-registered 406 MHz beacon developed to save lives. As soon as you buy a boat, outfitting it with a safety kit above and beyond the minimum U.S.C.G. requirements, should be the utmost priority.”
