Each year, an average of 2K people die on ships. Commercial seafaring is considered the second most dangerous occupation globally; deep-sea fishing is the first. In 2013, 138 ships were beyond recovery, and 85 ships had actually sunk below water level. On average, two ships a week are lost at sea, mainly due to failures in emergency response, engineering, and seamanship, especially when those factors are combined with a ship navigating in bad weather or remote surroundings. Even though cruise ships and passenger ferries usually attract the most attention, since they mainly carry people, freighter ships account for the large majority of accidents. 
To prevent being lost at sea, carrying some form of emergency signaling device should be considered imperative by any ship or person that’s traveling far from shore. Quickly notifying other ships when a ship and its crew are in danger, especially emergency responders like the Coast Guard, is the key to avoiding casualties. And, using a radar system and an emergency signaling device either integrated with a digital chart plotter is the best form of protection since this combination allows the entire ship to become an information hub, with the ship’s radar networked to the chart plotter and EPIRBs.
