Accurate and continuous position information is critical for Search & Rescue responders. SafeTrx continually monitors the casualty’s location from first alert to recovery, providing reassuring protection when and where it’s needed the most.
Official reports from our Search & Rescue partners in 11 countries show that in 2021, SafeTrx was involved in over 960 search and rescue missions in locations across the globe, from Europe to Australia. The Netherlands alone saw a significant 68% increase in the number of SafeTrx missions on the previous year.
This includes the world’s first rescue of a wing surfer who was wearing our SafeTrx Active wearable device. He was able to send an alert while surviving in the cold North Sea and was saved by members of surf club Jumpteam Scheveningen with the professional support of the Netherlands Coastguard and the KNRM. There were also 60 assistance requests via the SafeTrx Active wearable device in 2021.
SafeTrx is directly connected to search and rescue organisations, minimising the time you’re left in the water and enabling your local search and rescue services to get help to you faster than ever.
