AUTHORISED IMPORTER & RESELLER OF GREATLAND RESCUE LASER FLARES & LIGHTS

RESCUE LASER FLARES ® AND LIGHTS

 

 

These up-to-the-minute devices offer a simple and effective way of pinpointing your position to a rescue ship or airplanes searching for you. The laser "torch" emits a fan-shaped beam which is pointed at the target and moved slowly back and forth across it. The rescue crew will see a flashing red light which they will be able to home in on.

 

Laser flares and lights have a number of advantages over pyrotechnic flares for guiding rescuers to the casualty:

 

  1. Longer in-use life. A typical white pyrotechnic flare, a one-off device, lasts for less than a minute whereas the Rescue Laser Flares ® and Lights last for hours. Whilst this depends on the weather and the amount of ambient light, in clear conditions and no ambient light the laser devices can be seen out to 20 miles (30 miles in the case of the Green Rescue Laser Flare ®) by night. By day they are visible out to 3 miles.
  2. Location. Laser flares and lights can be used to illuminate reflective materials such as those on oilskins and lifebuoys out to a range of 1 mile.
  3. Ease of use. Having a simple twist method of switching on and off, laser flares and lights are easy to use.
  4. Safety. Laser flares and lights are battery powered and are not a fire hazard. They are much safer to use than a pyrotechnic flare and they can be carried by air.
  5. No Hazardous materials to be disposed of after they expire.

"Bottom line is that the Rescue Laser is worth adding to your survival gear and the red Rescue Laser Light is standard equipment in my Doug Ritter Ultimate Aviator Survival Paks. It's small and light enough to fit on a key chain. In terms of distress signaling priorities, after a 406 MHz PLB and a signal mirror, it's next on the list. While the red Rescue Lasers are certainly adequate, the Green Rescue Laser Flare is definitely an even better choice. The Green Rescue Laser Flare is what I carry and is what's in my personal aviation survival kit. In my opinion, the Green Rescue Laser Flare is well worth the considerable extra cost if you can swing it, but if not, the red will do just fine."
