EPIRBs & PLBs
Transmitting the proper message of emergency, and alerting someone to your location, can greatly increase your chances of fast rescue.
EPIRB/ PLB Battery CHANGE: LRSE services both ACR and McMurdo EPIRBs. Send or deliver your EPIRB to our Tiverton address and we will change the battery and run a computerized test to ensure it's quality.
EPIRB/ PLB Registration: Every two years, or every big voyage (LRSE recommended), your EPIRB needs to be updated with vessel information. The registration/update is completely free and can be done by mailing or faxing or instantly online. You will receive a sticker in the mail within a week or two from NOAA which should get applied to your EPIRB. www.beaconregistration.NOAA.gov
