Giving control to rescuers from long distances
01 November 2017
Speed is of paramount importance for suspended victims, before lack of circulation becomes critical.
Being suspended for 5 to 15 minutes can cause unconsciousness and often harness-induced death. Reach and Rescue have developed useful, effective tools applicable with their unmatched long-reach pole systems to aid fall arrest victims. They range from snap-off spring fittings to rope-cutting blades and line attachment mechanisms. The kit is used successfully worldwide.
Reach and Rescue's Carrago System connects to the top of our pole and then detaches from the pole once connected to the victim, leaving a line attached to a suspended, harnessed victim. This gives control to the rescuer from extended reach distances.
Reach and Rescue’s unique telescopic poles have a reach capability of 17 Metres and come with a comprehensive range of attachments to serve every rescue scenario. Emergency Fire and Safety Ltd call it ‘one of the most innovative water rescue aids of the decade’.
