The future of search and rescue.
RECCO® technology makes me searchable in the event of an avalanche accident. It enables professional rescuers to rapidly pinpoint a buried person’s location using the RECCO® detector. RECCO® 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.
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 times, specific places, and for particular reasons.
