EPIRBs (Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon) save lives. Period.
In fact, just last year (2016) EPIRBs contributed to over 300 rescues in the US alone (per the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA).
It’s for this reason Fish Safe will be providing a free EPIRB* to qualifying vessels when skipper and crew participate in our FREE Safest Catch workshop.
New Transport Canada regulations (Fishing Vessel Safety Regulations) coming into force July 2017 will require EPIRBs on board certain commercial fishing vessels in Canada. To find out if your vessel will be affected by these new regulations and to see how Fish Safe can help, contact us today!
(*Free EPIRB campaign is while EPIRB quantities last. Funding for Fish Safe purchase of EPIRBs has been made possible by funding received from Transport Canada under their Boating Safety Contribution Program-Commercial Fishing.)
