Today the use of personal flashing beacon Adventure Lights by many different individuals and groups will vary in their reasoning, but not the overall goal. This is to help other distinguish themselves from their surroundings and get noticed.
For those professionals that are working in or near roadways need this type of safety device so they can perform their function at a higher level of safety. This not only includes road workers repairing pavement but also garbage men and railroad workers. Their presence has to be noticed by those around them and a flashing light is the best possible way of doing this.
This is the same reasoning EMT’s, police men and firemen wear this device. Motorist and pedestrians alike need to know these emergency workers are performing a public service in dangerous areas and their presence must not only be seen but respected.
It is then hikers, hunters and miners that use them in locations that are sparsely populated. They use the personal flashing beacons so their exact location can help rescue workers find them in the vast open spaces where they are or in the case of miners, so they can be found where the only light source very well could be their flashing beacon.
The personal flashing beacon is a safety device that operates on its own once it is turned on. They are impact resistant and have a power source that can last up to 10 days of continuous usage if fully charged. This time period in which the flashing light will continue to work is a comforting thought to anyone who has ever been lost in the wilderness.
What is really unique about the way a hunter uses a personal flashing beacon is that they generally do not wear it themselves. They place the flashing light on their hunting companion, their dogs. This way the animals they are attempting to hunt will have their attention drawn away for the hunter and towards the dog. This is the only type of person that uses the personal flashing beacon to draw attention away from their location, which is the exact opposite of how all others use this safety device.
Because of the durability of the personal safety beacon, even swimmers and boaters can use them while they are playing in or on the water. Most of these safety devices are sealed and water proof up to 300 feet of water. This water proofing is also handy to have for hikers that have to cross rivers or streams. They will most likely never reach a depth of 300 feet, but their flashing beacon can become submersed and still function as it is suppose too.
The only occupation out at night that does not even think about wearing a personal safety beacon is the thieves roaming the back alleys and streets. Unlike those doing wrong, most of us out after the sun goes down want the many safety benefits a person receives by wearing this helpful flashing beacon.
