The award winning, innovative Reach and Rescue pole has successfully saved many lives around the world. The revolutionary system has been designed by Reach and Rescue Ltd, a UK based company, in conjunction with a leading UK Fire and Rescue Service, to speed up rescues massively and keep the operator safe from the hazard zone in situations that can involve water, ice, mud and flood related incidents.
The key function of the Reach and Rescue Pole is that it accurately deploys a flotation or rescue device to a casualty as quickly as possible, thus saving valuable time on the rescue that might otherwise have been wasted, leading to possible tragedy. This directional method of administering aid is significantly a more accurate form of rescuing than the existing throw bag procedure.
From an operational perspective, the Reach and Rescue Pole is incredibly versatile. There is a huge selection of flotation and retrieval attachments that are available in kits or individually meaning the Pole can be specifically tailored to suit the requirements of any rescue situation. This year we will be launching a brand new product at the ESS, which ticks a huge box for manual handling in the Water Rescue Services so be sure to visit us on Stand OS1100.
