SafeTrx Active launches in Norway

8 West are delighted to announce that the SafeTrx Active track and alert wearable is now available in Norway. Working with our partner, Redningsselskapet (RS) – the Norwegian Sea Rescue Service, we will be rolling out a service which provides safety cover on land as well as on sea

SafeTrx Active is a purpose-built personal emergency search and rescue system for open water and outdoor sports enthusiasts which has been designed in very close co-operation with the leading Search and Rescue (SAR) organisations in the world. Recognising that a small, lightweight, long range, water resistant, wearable tracking and communications device was a requirement for the wet watersports sector, 8 West worked with its SAR partners to build such a solution.

Martin Fuhr Bolstad, acting Secretary General of Redningsselskapet said today, “Redningsselskapet has for a long time worked to improve safety for water sports enthusiasts. With the launch of SafeTrx Active we are making a giant step in improving safety for this group”.

SafeTrx Active is already available to purchase in The Netherlands and we have received fantastic feedback from our new customers. We are looking forward to shipping the product to new customers in Norway very soon.
