Watch the video: Safety kit saves life of fisherman

This is the story of a life saved because the fisherman was wearing a lifejacket (PFD) and a locator beacon (PLB).

They are life savers .
Get the kit and WEAR it.
Live to tell your story too.

What had started out as an ordinary working day for commercial fisherman Paul, turned into his worst nightmare when he went overboard from the Sidney Rose, miles from land.

Paul says: “I’m very glad it turned out well, you hear the stories and know it doesn’t always. My message to other fishermen is simple: Wear a lifejacket. I did and it saved my life. They’re only small, they don’t get in the way when you’ve got them on, you get used to them, and if I didn’t have mine on, I wouldn’t be talking to you now.”
