Emergency VHF Radios
Emergency / Survival / Rescue Radios
An Emergency / Survival / Rescue Radio, regardless of the name, should be a vital part of any vessel's survival or ditch bag. This designated radio has one purpose - to be available, fully charged and ready for use in the event of an emergency. Required on all vessels that need to meet GMDSS, the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, minimum safety standards agreed to by the International Maritime Organization (OMO), regulations - to include commercial marine and petro-marine vessels.
