Developed to provide avalanche rescue, the RECCO® Rescue System is used by more than 700 rescue organisations around the world.
For several years, the National Syndicate of French Ski Instructors has partnered with RECCO® to equip the official outfit of instructors with safety reflectors and has made available a document entitled the plan
, a real avalanche safety memento in a small format so that every skier or snowboarder can have it handy.
This system aims to find the victims buried under an avalanche thanks to a technology which makes the search faster with a significant saving of time, because time is the buried person's worst enemy. The RECCO® reflector is permanently integrated into the outfits of esf instructors and does not require batteries or start-up and operates continuously.
RECCO® reflectors do not prevent the onset of an avalanche, nor guarantee the location or survival of a lost or buried person, but allows rescuers to locate a person more quickly and accurately using the RECCO detector ®.
