Agency: Register emergency beacons

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration urges emergency beacon owners to check their registration information before heading out.

Officials also urge beacon owners to review registration and identification numbers for their devices before their excursions.

By law, all emergency locator beacons must be registered with NOAA. To register or update a registration, visit www.sarsat.noaa.gov/beacon.html. Beacon owners planning a trip can provide their itinerary in the “additional data” field of the registration information.
