For Reach and Rescue, innovation is at the core of the business and the revolutionary, multi-award winning long reach telescopic rescue pole system has changed the way the rescue services conduct water rescue – saving lives and keeping the operator out of the hazard zone.
With the longest reach in the world, up to 17 metres, the Reach and Rescue pole is now used by 80% of the UK Fire and Emergency Services and is exported to 46 countries worldwide.
