the future of search and rescue
RECCO® technology makes you searchable in the event of an avalanche accident. It enables professional rescuers to rapidly pinpoint a buried person’s location using the RECCO® detector. Reflectors are not a substitute for transceiver use. Complementary in function, this technology increases the chance of being found in time.
It can happen to anybody, anytime, anywhere
MAYA MAYA & RECCO®
Together we develop protective waterproof and windproof clothing with avalanche safety reflectors. Unlike any other avalanche safety technologies, RECCO® reflector can be forgotten, as it is always in your outdoor apparel.

RESORTS AND OPERATIONS
ALWAYS WITH YOU
Wherever you ride, treck or climb, chances are good that your local resort is equipped with the RECCO Rescue System.
More than 800 resorts around the world use RECCO
rescue system with immediate response.
The system recognizes the technology in your
jacket so rescuers know exactly where you are.
Even more, in case of avalanche they are here in
shortest possible time.
It is not entirely unpredictable
An avalanche is simply a mass of snow sliding down a steep hill or mountain. The most dangerous is the slab avalanche which occurs when a cohesive plate of snow breaks free and slides down the mountainside.
Avalanches happen at specific time, specific places and for particular reasons.
Here are some locations in the Alps, where Avalanches occur frequently and not without casualties.
WE ARE AWARE! ... ARE YOU?
