The second part of the article looks at working with equipment, safety and supervision where the Reach and Rescue Pole has a highlight about how versatile the system is and how it can assist with many tasks in rescue operations but also massively increasing the operator’s safety.


On page 28 of the article, it speaks about more about utilising rope systems and shows an image (below) of a ‘’Rope Blade’’ mechanism that the user has improvised and self-made but speaks of the vastly superior telescopic Reach Pole method that the rescuer may not have been aware of. This would have greatly benefited this situation but also ensured maximum safety for all in the hazard zone. You can read more about our Rope Blade attachment HERE.
