[Watch] How Do EPIRBs Locate a Sinking Ship?


When a ship sinks, the first priority of any rescuer is to actually locate the vessel in distress. It may seem easy, but in comparison to the size of an ocean, its not! That’s where an EPIRB comes in.

An EPIRB is an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon, and it is one of the most important pieces of safety equipment that is carried. It transmits the location of the distress to satellites orbiting the earth, allowing rescuers to find you. In this video, we take a look at how EPIRBs work, and see what you can do to make sure they work properly.
