Emergency & Breakdown - How do I activate my Beacon?
Two-way communications via a mobile/satellite phone or radio is the most effective means of communication when in a distress situation, with some of the reasons outlined below:
- Instant confirmation that the call has been received by emergency services;
- Ability to communicate position, nature of distress, required assistance;
- Emergency services can adequately scale response assets according to required assistance;
- Ability to provide updates on the situation and also receive advice until emergency services arrive.
If two-way communications are not available, then a distress beacon should be activated in situations of grave and imminent danger. This equates to when you feel you are facing a life-threatening situation. This is a personal decision that is different for everybody.
The correct way to deploy your beacon depends on the type of beacon you have and whether you're on land or water.
