USCG Activates Option Year for McMurdo Emergency Beacons

Orolia, through its McMurdo brand, the most trusted name in emergency readiness and response, announced today that the US Coast Guard (USCG) has activated its first option year on its contract for up to 16,000 FastFind® 220 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) units to support USCG forces nationwide.

The USCG awarded McMurdo a $3 million contract in July 2016 for PLBs to be ordered over the next five years. McMurdo's ability to maintain a 100 percent on-time delivery rate throughout the contract performance period ensures that the USCG can quickly deploy this critical technology to protect crew members safeguarding America's waterways.
