Reach and Rescue have scooped another innovation award for the unique and revolutionary long reach telescopic rescue pole system at this year’s Seatrade Maritime Awards as part of the UAE Maritime Week, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, UAE.

It is a fantastic accomplishment to be recognised for innovation in the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa and is testament to the global application of and need for this unique life saving system.

In front of hundreds of guests at the Atlantis in Dubai, Reach and Rescue’s Director, Jo Taylor, proudly accepted this prestigious award.

The company started eight years after firefighters in the UK realised 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, revolutionising the way water rescues are carried out and saving lives.

The Reach and Rescue Pole is UK manufactured and is serving the maritime industry in the UK and sold in over 46 countries.

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.

Whilst out in Dubai, Reach and Rescue are exhibiting at the Seatrade Maritime Middle East Exhibition which is being held in the Dubai World Trade Centre between 29th and 31st October. We are proudly displaying the award together with the range of unique, versatile and life saving poles and attachments.
