Reach and Rescue are award winners for the revolutionary innovation – the Reach and Rescue Pole System which has successfully saved many valuable lives all around the world. The system provides a flotation or other rescue device to a casualty with speed and accuracy and also keeps the rescuer out of the hazardous zone. A UK manufacturer, Reach and Rescue Ltd designed the system in conjunction with a leading UK Fire and Rescue division with the goal to speed up rescues massively whilst also keeping the operator safe in situations that involve water, ice, mud and flood related incidents.
The Reach and Rescue Pole is a unique rescue system that utilises a telescopic design that reaches up to a massive 17 Metres. It consists of a Carbon Fibre material to keep the weight low but ensures high strength and rigidity which is essential in rescues as you need to be assured the pole won’t fail under harsher conditions. You also don’t have to worry about the weight of the pole on the water due to the flotation collar buoyancy aid which allows the pole to be controlled easily, quickly and accurately to save lives in the least time possible.
Our goal is to increase the safety of the rescuers around the world, keeping the rescuer out of the hazard zone is a must in all of our endeavours. The existing Throw bag method is a popular way of rescuing all around the world and does indeed keep the operator out of danger. However, this is a significantly more inaccurate method of rescuing due to the many inconsistent variables such as; inaccurate throws due to harsher weather conditions, loss of time due to repacking of the bag for re-throw and the casualty also has to be conscious to be pulled to safety.
The Reach and Rescue Pole counters all of these variables due to its strength, rigidity, resistance to harsh weather conditions and also a versatile range of attachments which allows the operator to retrieve a casualty conscious or unconscious. It is time to adopt the new norm and rescue with confidence and speed.
We offer a wide range of unique rescue attachments used for many different rescue scenarios. The pole can be specifically tailored to suit the requirements of any rescue situation, emphasising the incredible versatility the system can offer. From Body Hooks to Window Smashers, our range will have something that will assist in any of your rescue situations.
One of our more recent innovations is the unique underwater search camera system which is used for inspecting/searching at heights or underwater at heights and depths of up to 17 Metres. With a battery powered camera complete with a colour monitor and record function, this system will assist massively in any search and rescue operations that require inspections at reach.
This unique method has now been adopted by 70% of the Fire and Rescue teams across the UK. The pole has also saved many lives all around the world. The telescopic reach pole method is becoming the norm for rescue operations that involve a casualty out of safe reach and minimalizing the risks in Rescue operations. This is an absolute must for our life savers around the world.
