Reach Rescue Pole Set Offshore
Reach Rescue Pole Set are used around the world, in the maritime industry Man overboard is a situation in which a person has fallen from a boat or ship into the water and is in need of rescue. Whoever sees the person’s fall should shout “man overboard” to alert other crew members and attempt to maintain visual contact with the person in the water. The Reach and Rescue, long reach telescopic pole system can be deployed in seconds to reach and rescue the victim from any part of the boat. It can also be used to retrieve objects fallen overboard. Its very useful also to bring people to Jason’s Cradles or the mate saver man overboard systems. Reach and Rescue also have attachments to assist in mooring the boat.

Reach poles of some sort or another to extend the arm of a rescuer, but the pole has never been much more than a broom handle or a length of pipe. All over the world you will still find rescuers using the most rudimentary methods to just get that extra few feet of contact when needed. Even amongst the most sophisticated high tech mechanical apparatus used by advanced teams, the lonely broom handle can be found tucked into a corner.

The crew actually used the pole to rescue a male from water. Access was a problem due to the height difference from the bank to the water; they needed to stop the male from drifting away downstream from them.
The rescue was made easier by sheer fact the pole was quick to get to work, they could affect the rescue initially to a point of safety near the bank away from the flow, which then allowed the crew time to put a further system of work in place to get the male from the water.
This is because reaching is a fundamental requirements of so many rescue tasks. So much so the water rescue mantra used in many countries particularly the UK places if upfront ‘SHOUT REACH, THROW, ROW, GO’ for many years when a broom handle was too short the water / ice rescues were first approached with a throwline and this is still and always will be very effective. But when the situation demanded something more engaging, the next thing to do was to hazard an operator one way or another.
This all started to change in 2010 when Reach and Rescue Ltd created the worlds first and still the world’s only truly long reach pole systems . Long Reach means up to 60FT. The high tech carbon fibre telescopic pole systems are designed to use a variety of rescue tools to execute the required action. Because of the capability of the pole equip operator and the accuracy of deployment, not to mention the time (SECONDS NOT MINUTES) the throw line, never mind the water / icy entry exercise is becoming less of an occurrence. Reach and rescue poles are now deployed and saving lives, whilst protecting the operators in Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, Scottish Fire Service, West Midlands Fire and rescue, Norfolk, South Wales, North Wales, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue to name a few.
Reach Rescue Pole Set Telescopic systems are always used in many training schools for swift water rescue in Rescue 3, Outreach and NE Rescue. Search and Rescue volunteer teams are also adopting the poles with WatersafeUK being a partner of Reach and Rescue using the equipment when called out to national flood disasters and the like.
