C-Hero® VR-12 Man Overboard Rescue Rescue Pole


In a MOB situation, the Rescue Pole improves your risk mitigation by allowing the rescuer to stay on deck and reach down to the person in water (PIW). The last thing you need is the risk of another person in the water by being outside the bullworks. The hook for the winch line is already connected to the rescue pole. This intuitive rescue system goes over the person and then under the arms, to attach the lifting strap.

This rescue pole (with your anchor handling davit or our portable Rescue Davit) makes a complete man overboard rescue solution for an unconscious person. This allows you to put a rescue strap on an unconscious person in the water that is already attached to the lifting line on your davit.

If you don't already have an anchor handling davit, check out our portable Rescue Davit here.

The Rescue Pole is used to bring a person closer to the vessel before deploying the strap. It provides a quick recovery of conscious and unconscious people, however a rescue with the Rescue Pole will be easier and faster even if the PIW cannot assist.

Time is of the essence in a rescue situation, and keeping the deck crew safe is paramount. The Rescue Pole keeps your crew inside the bulwarks of the vessel.
