ACR/ARTEX SurvivorClub, where membership definitely has its rewards will make its Miami public debut at this year’s Miami International Boat Show. SurvivorClub gives our survivors the opportunity to share their first hand experience and educate boaters on the life saving difference of carrying a beacon.
ACR/ARTEX instituted the SurvivorClub as an on going collection of stories for those who have survived land, sea and air mishaps due to their use of an ACR 406 MHz Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) or an ARTEX 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) in an emergency. Other benefits to joining the SurvivorClub are members can trade-in their used beacon for a new one. The traded in, retired beacon is then mounted on a plaque. That plaque will then hang at the ACR/ARTEX international headquarters in Ft Lauderdale, FL on the Survivor’s Wall.
Â Max Young is a SurvivorClub member who has flown in from Sacramento, CA to share his rescue story and to promote and educate the integral use of emergency beacons to the international boating community. Schedule an interview and photo opp with Max.Â Please stop by booth B97 at the Miami Boat Show in the Convention Center to learn about being rescued by our lifesaving products; products you will not want to boat without.
