The image below is from a tweet from our NG Lands Police account. Their wording (if it is a bit small is “German tourists successfully rescued by Warburton Police 120kms in the desert after tyre failure and EPIRB signal”.
This story ended well because they were prepared.Please if you are planning a trip, plan to survive. Emergency Ops Unit strongly encourage you to carry your own GPS / EPIRB (Emergency position indicating radio beacon) or PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) plus orange smoke flares.
Take the ‘search’ out of rescue 🙂
