17 metre long telescopic pole saves lives

Friday, 15 March 2019

The METSTRADE Show is the world’s largest trade show of its kind. Some 1600 exhibiting companies together showcase thousands of products. In 2016, exhibitors selected by a panel of international trade magazine journalists, demonstrated the benefits of their products by means of elevator pitches.

One of these “Pitch to Press” participants last year was Reach and Rescue. This is a long reach telescopic pole system that is used to save lives across the world. The company started eight years ago after firefighters in the UK realized that they were missing a vital component in their water rescue procedure and needed an innovative solution. Reach and Rescue created the innovative, longest and versatile long reach telescopic rescue pole in the world, revolutionizing the way water rescues are carried out and saving lives. The pole itself can be extended to an unmatched length of 17 metres and can be deployed to the casualty with directional accuracy in just 20 seconds. The rigid, carbon fibre construction of the pole allows the operator to deploy regardless of the weather or general conditions, making it ideal for use throughout the world.
