Paddler using SafeTrx app rescued in South Africa

A recent incident in South Africa saw a paddler rescued by the NSRI rescue crew who used the paddler’s RSA SafeTrx app emergency coordinates in combination with their new advanced onboard technology to live track the paddler.

“The combination of this advanced technology, together with the paddler having the NSRI RSA SafeTrx app downloaded onto his cellphone used to activate the emergency, which provides updated coordinates that are now received and tracked directly by the rescue crew onboard the sea rescue craft who are physically responding to the scene, enabled the rescue operation to be performed swiftly with ease and with a successful outcome.”
