RECCO Avalanche Rescue System
RECCO is a two-part avalanche rescue system that is utilized by more than 500 rescue organizations worldwide. More than 100 North American ski resorts, heli-skiing companies and search and rescue organizations now use RECCO technology. This avalanche rescue system is NOT intended for self-rescue nor is it an alternative to avalanche beacon use in the backcountry. The two parts of the system are the RECCO reflectors and detectors. Reflectors are integrated into commercially available apparel, helmets, protection gear or boots and weigh less than four grams. Detectors are used by professional rescue groups and weigh around 1.6kg. The RECCO rescue system is an additional tool that does not interfere with other rescue methods such as avalanche dogs, transceiver searches or probe lines. Since it operates with a heightened frequency, the system functions with exceptional directional accuracy. Once an initial signal is picked-up, the searcher does not need to follow flux lines, like with an avalanche transceiver, and is led directly to the burial. This reduces search times and provides pinpoint accuracy thus significantly increasing chances of survival.
The RECCO reflector is non-powered, never needs to be switched on, will never loose signal strength and doesn't need any batteries to function.
Another major advantage of the system is that since the reflector is integrated into clothing, helmets, ski boots and protective gear, it requires no action on the part of the individual skier or snowboarder to function properly. The RECCO system does not require any additional investments or training on the consumer's side which makes it ideal for a wide spectrum of users.
