You, me and Joe the Plumber via the 1040a form. I don't know if the rescuee is hit up with the $1,000,000 or whatever to fuel multiple ships and aircraft, insure and feed the crew, divert commercial vessels, etc.
That would surely curtail the E.P.I.R.B. sales if you had to put up $500,000 in escrow for a down-payment on the costs of activating it.
