Register your equipment

A personal location beacon

This emergency beacon was washed up on Swanage beach a few back and handed into Swanage Police.  They did some research to trace the owner , including contacting the Coastguard but sadly it was found to be unregistered.

The whole point of one of these devices is that if activated, the Coastguard know who is in trouble.

Thankfully some detective work with the manufacturer finally located a grateful owner.

Always register your safety equipment
