Emergency lighting in case of an accident at sea
Boating: Cyalume glow sticks for safety on board your boat
In France for example, it mandatory for all boat passengers (on vessels measuring less that 24m) to have an individual light source to attract attention.
To ensure your safety in the event of an incident at sea, lifejackets must be equipped with lighting that provides visibility for at least 6 hours so that you can be seen and rescued quickly.
Indeed, it is very difficult to spot a person in distress at sea if they do not have a light to attract attention. Life jackets are mandatory for all passengers and must have a personal light source attached (with a standard of snap hook) It is a matter of everyone’s safety.
More recently, it has been stated that pleasure craft operating or parked on exposed inland waters must also follow these regulations: it is required that each person on board must wear an individual Cyalume type light marking device. It must be waterproof and last for at least 6 hours.
This regulation for safety at sea and “exposed inland waters” concerns all boats with a hull length greater than 2.50m and less than 24 metres. Be prepared for water sports. No matter the location, as soon as a person falls into water, it is essential that they have a light source to be able to be located and rescued as quickly as possible.
