Faulty emergency beacons warning

Faulty emergency beacons warning
21 Nov 2013 13:01
An urgent safety alert has been issued to fishermen concerning potentially defective emergency positional beacons.
So far 19 faults with Emergency Position Indication Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) have been reported.
The six models were all made between 2005 and 2010 and have now been identified as being at risk of failure.
They are GME MT400, GME MT401, GME MT406G, GME MT401FF, GME MT403/G AND GME MT 403FF/FG
The owners of all GME EPIRBs are being told to carry out immediate testing on their beacon.
Meanwhile, gardaí and marine safety officers are investigating if an emergency device used on a boat in which three brothers died may have been defective.
Shane, Paul and Kenny Bolger, from Passage East in Co Waterford, died in Tramore Bay during the summer when their boat capsized.
There are around 2,100 EPIRB's, or Emergency Position Indication Radio Beacons, in use at present around the coast.
700 of those are made by an Australian company, GME.
All EPIRBs are supposed to send out an emergency signal if it is submerged in water, when for example a boat might capsize or sink.
The safety alert has been issued by the Department of Transport as the Coastguard currently works under this department.
They are advising of potential failures of six types of EPIRBs manufactured by GME.
