Who Needs a Rescue Laser Flare?

Whether you are a wilderness adventurer or a weekend outdoor recreationalist, a Greatland Rescue Laser should be part of your standard safety kit. Not only is it a critical survival device for the rare instances that you need to signal for rescue, it is also a valuable tool for locating retro-reflective items such as trail markers, bouys, and anyone or anything with retro-reflective material. Use it to prevent getting lost, but if you do, use it to get found!

Boaters

Locate a man overboard in the dark. Find mooring balls and fishing gear. Signal other boats and aircraft in search and rescue emergencies.

Snow Mobilers

Find cabins, trail markers, vehicles and other riders in the dark. Signal for help for distances up to 20 miles or better.

Kayakers

Signal for help, warn oncoming boats of your presence or locate your gear at night. The waterproof design of the Rescue Laser products make it a practical survival tool for kayakers.

Hikers

From scanning a trail for markers to signaling your companions, finding where you placed that hidden supply of food or equipment, or simply signaling for assistance. The Rescue Laser is, ounce for ounce, your best bet for safety and identification.

Campers

Campers can identify their trails to and from camp using reflective tape and a laser, while others will chose to mark tents, boats, and other equipment for quick identification against the surrounding terrain. Put reflective materials on the kids and know that you'll be able to "see" them when conventional lighting won't.

Mountain Climbers

Against the backdrop of granite, climbers have often been difficult to locate. Using a Rescue Laser , climbers using reflective materials will be able to locate each other. Reflective fibers woven into lines will render those lines much more visible under laser light.

Police Officers

Now Police Officers can signal the helicopter overhead while in foot pursuit, or use a Rescue Laser Flare and reflective materials for marking roadways and crime scenes. Imagine using the line properties to determine trajectories, identify points or locations to other officers, or signal each other over great distances. Reflective surfaces like taillight reflectors and license plates sparkle when hit with laser light, and seem to jump off their surfaces. Mark equipment and items for easy location in even the darkest environments.

Fire Fighters

Knowing where your partner is in a burning building may mean the difference between life and death. Laser light penetrates smoke and haze better than conventional lights and will help you find the reflective clothing on another fireman. Additionally, our patented systems are available in several models, all with the unmistakable characteristic of being able to provide a sheet of laser light to guide your way out, and home. Because it generates no heat, is portable and completely safe to use in flammable environments, it is the one light you need when your life may depend on it.

Search and Rescue

With the incorporation of reflective materials in everything we wear, from hats to shoes, and in the accessories we take with us, it makes sense to have a Rescue Laser. Anything you can use to make your detection process better you should include in your gear. Imagine, seeing the .75 inch square "N" on a pair of New Balance shoes at over .5 mile in the dark. We call that remarkable! Laser light will open up new possibilities for search operations and allow you to continue searching when darkness limited your search before. Mark K-P's, equipment, trails, search areas, signal air crews and other searchers. The possibilities are endless.

Parents

Imagine losing a child in the wilderness, at the beach, or any other open terrain at night. By having them wear retro-reflective clothing items, you will be able to scan the terrain and pick them up better than using the naked eye alone. Training children to find an open space and "show their face" will give search and rescue crews a greater opportunity to find them as well. And if those crews have a Greatland Laser product, their chances of finding them will be increased as well. For signaling the gang to head back to camp, to locating camps and kids, nothing works like a Greatland Laser.

Pilots

With the Rescue Laser you can detect ice on your wings without losing your night vision and signal your position in an emergency at distances up to 20 miles or better.

Skiers

Advances in ski clothing include the addition of retro reflective materials to gloves and other clothing articles. Ski equipment can also be easily marked with reflective materials that make the Rescue Laser your best bet in locating that equipment when it's lost in the field. Against the snow, the line drawing properties of these products will aid showing others the "best line" of a slope or run.

 Military Personnel

The US Navy reported in a 2003 Aviation Survival Gear Field Test that "this signal laser is perhaps one of the best night signals invented." The Rescue Laser Light was a popular addition to survival kits used by
U.S. Army and Air Force personnel deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA) successfully tested Greatland Laser’s signaling devices in 2006. Testing of the Green Rescue Laser Flare® with the 12th Aviation Battalion found "an individual on the ground was able to signal aircraft flying at 2,000 feet out five nautical miles during daylight to dusk condition." During Desert Rescue, the Green Rescue Laser Flare® was used to signal a rescue helicopter flying at 50 to 200 feet out two nautical miles in midday and full sun. They were able to quickly pick up the bright flashes from the laser and vector in on the survivor.

Federal Law allows an EXCEPTION for laser emergency signaling devices to send a distress signal to aircraft.

In February 2012, the United States Congress passed into law HR658 authorizing appropriations for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for fiscal years 2011 through 2014.  Included in the law is Section 311 "Prohibition Against Aiming a Laser Pointer at an Aircraft".  Section 311 39A(c)(3) on page 56 specifically exempts "an individual using a laser emergency signaling devices to send an emergency distress signal."

Greatland Laser has sold its patented laser emergency signaling devices throughout the world for over 10 years.  We have never had a safety issue with the products.  Under the exception provided in this federal law, Rescue Lasers are legal to signal an aircraft for help in an emergency.
