In the event of an emergency at sea, you can request immediate assistance if you carry a marine emergency buoy
, such as EPIRB
or AIS MOB
equipment. EPIRB stands for E
eacon, these devices send a satellite-based alarm signal to a central control centre. EPIRBs are also known as Emergency Radio Beacons or Marine Distress Beacons
and are suitable for worldwide use. AIS MOB / SART transmitters are a good addition to radio equipment for use in coastal or inland waterways.
