The right equipment is crucial in risky rescue operations

A man overboard situation often involves injured or unconscious individuals who are unable to climb into safety by themselves. If they are not treated carefully, this can result in aggravation of injuries. The best practice is to recover them in a horizontal position.

Another challenge is rough sea conditions. Launching a rescue craft is too risky in many situations. In order to be prepared for all scenarios, all vessels need to have the right rescue equipment.

The Dacon Rescue Scoop is ideal for effective and gentle man overboard rescue – in all types of weather. Using a standard deck crane, your crew can easily lower the net into the water and scoop up individuals in distress. Thereby, you avoid putting your crew at risk. This rescue product can also be used as a scrambling net for rescuees who are conscious and uninjured.
