On the Beacon Watch website, we describe our SeaMe™ personal locator beacon as “the smallest life preserver that could save your life.” But what exactly is a personal locator beacon, and how can it help keep you and your family safe? Read on to find out!
On The Water
In emergency situations, time is almost always of the essence–and this is especially true in water-related emergencies. When someone is injured in the water, for example, there is nothing more important than getting them back onto the boat quickly in order to treat their wound and to prevent the risk of drowning. Cold or turbulent water can also be extremely risky, even if the victim isn’t necessarily injured. A personal locator beacon can be crucial in these kinds of situations. At the press of a button, a distress signal is released. Connected smartphones will receive notification, along with the victim’s exact location. The SeaMe™ beacon even includes a flashing LED light, which can make search and rescue much easier.
On The Slopes
The SeaMe™ personal locator beacon isn’t just for the water, however. Personal locator beacons can be lifesaving in a number of professional and sporting situations–and one activity that lends itself especially to the use of a locator beacon is skiing. Due to a number of risks such as crashing, avalanches, and tree wells, (along with the added danger of extremely cold weather) skiers can also end up in situations that require rapid rescue. Once again, a personal locator beacon can be the difference between life and death in such moments.
What Makes the SeaMe™ Special?
There are a number of personal locator beacons on the market, however we believe that the SeaMe™ beacon is especially useful due to its smartphone compatibility, LED light, and patented technology that allows the beacon to be always ready at a moment’s notice with no power switch. Visit the Beacon Watch website for more information on this potentially lifesaving technology.
