Additional Information About Recco
RECCO technology makes you searchable by professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident or when lost in the outdoors. The two-part technology consists of RECCO reflectors and RECCO detectors used by organized rescue groups worldwide. Together they enable directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar but are not a substitute for a transceiver. Complementary in function, the technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with transceivers, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. RECCO technology facilitates a faster organized search and increases the chance of being found in time.
RECCO reflectors require no power and no activation to function. Multiple reflectors are recommended for optimal performance.
RECCO detectors are used by rescue professionals worldwide. Visit recco.com to view the complete list.
To be equipped with at least one RECCO reflector is required at all FWT, FWQ and FWJ events, as they are a part of the mandatory safety equipment besides avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel.
RECCO reflectors are not a substitute for an avalanche transceiver!
