Sea Tow Foundation Now Offers Rental of Locator Beacons

Looking for extra security when traveling offshore or away from your home port this summer? The new beacon rental program from Sea Tow Foundation has you covered. Boaters now have the ability to rent locator devices for only $45 or $65 a week. Through an easy to use website www.boatingsafety.com/epirb you can select either a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) or an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) for a weekly rental.

This program is launched with support from ACR Electronics, which donated the beacons to the Sea Tow Foundation as part of their 60th anniversary. For boaters planning an extended trip or other boating adventure, being able to rent an EPIRB or PLB is a great way to have peace of mind that should the unexpected happen, emergency responders will be alerted and provided your location, greatly reducing the time until help arrives.

The Sea Tow Foundation is thankful for successful partnerships like this one with ACR Electronics to provide boaters additional peace of mind.

Visit www.boatingsafety.com/epirb to rent your beacon today.
