EpicTV: The RECCO System

Developed for avalanche rescue, the RECCO Rescue System is used by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to find buried avalanche victims. Rescue teams embrace the RECCO System because the technology makes searching significantly faster, which saves time, and time is the enemy of the buried victim.

Developed for avalanche rescue, the two-part system consists of a RECCO detector used by organized rescue groups and RECCO reflectors that are integrated into outerwear, helmets, protection gear and boots from hundreds of top outdoor brands. The reflector is permanently attached, requires no training and no batteries to function. It is always "on" and ready.
RECCO reflectors do not prevent avalanches nor do they guarantee location or survival in the event of a burial, but they enable organized rescue teams to pinpoint the person’s precise location.
