  Dissecting this little bit

from an otherwise accurate post

"Rescues are coordinated via a private company."

It would be more accurate to say that the Rescue Me Now is received by a private dispatch center and then relayed to the appropriate search and rescue team. Not private; it may well be the military as in the two SPOT rescues I personally know about.
