Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 

This PLB is programmed for registration in Canada
The Ocean Signal rescueMe PLB1 is designed for single hand usage even under the most difficult conditions. A spring loaded flap covers the activation button to prevent accidental activation. It 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.
The rescueME PLB1 sends your position and ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link when activated. Rescue services closest to your position are quickly notified of your emergency and advised of your current position to help with a prompt rescue.
The rescueME PLB1 comes with a flotation pouch to fit the PLB into. Please note that the PLB will not float in an operating position in the pouch. Make sure the PLB is firmly attached to the pouch with the lanyard, using suitable self locking knots. The unique mounting clip and flotation pouch allow you to carry the Ocean Signal rescueME wherever you are, on sea or on land.
rescueME PLB1 features:
  • Retractable antenna
  • 7 Year battery life and a 7 year warranty
  • High brightness strobe light (>1 candela)
  • 66 channel GPS receiver
*The Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 must be registered by the owner with the Canadian Beacon Registry. Register online or by post with the paper registration form enclosed.

It is mandatory for all Canadian 406 MHz ELTs, PLB's and EPIRBs to be registered with the Canadian Beacon Registry. 

Ensuring that your 406 MHz PLB, ELT or EPIRB is registered, as well as updating the information regularly, will facilitate the task for search and rescue personnel in the event of a distress situation.

If you have a registered emergency beacon, it is important that the information be accurate.

Please update the information in the registry:
  • if you move
  • if you want to update the emergency contact information
  • if your phone number changes, or
  • if any of the important information in the registry changes such as the color of vessel or aircraft.
Online access to the Canadian Beacon Registry is available to all 406 MHz emergency beacon owners to register new emergency beacons or to update their current information.

You can add or update your emergency beacon information online, by faxing or emailing a completed registration form, or by speaking with a representative:
