The National Safe Boating Council announced Sustaining Member ACR Electronics Inc. as recipient of the 2015 Horizon Award. ACR was commended for their support of NSBC’s Saved by the Beacon national campaign, which is designed to educate recreational boaters about the importance of 406 MHz beacons and how to use them correctly in the case of a boating emergency.
The NSBC’s Horizon Award is presented to individuals and organizations whose vision for the advancement of safer boating sees beyond the horizon to the next level of boating safety development. The actual award is a brass mariner’s telescope like those used aboard ships by the early mariners to scan the waters horizon.
“Working on the Saved by the Beacon campaign with the NSBC, a leading organization in recreational boating safety, was professionally rewarding. Knowing the impact that the Saved by the Beacon message will carry has been personally rewarding,” shared ACR Electronics media specialist Nichole Kalil.
