Getmie Safe Rescue System

The Fast Access lifting, and descending device is a rescue system by means of which one or two persons, or several persons one after the other are able to evacuate from a higher to a lower place at limited velocity. These devices are ideal for evacuation from cranes, hanging scaffolds and other structures. In addition, a person can be lifted or lowered from one level to another by a rescuer or the rescuer can descend to a casualty, collect that person and lower them to safety. The Fast Access model has two lifting ratchets to allow an increase in lifting speed. With the addition of the rescue pole a casualty can be connected to the system from up to 5.4 metres away and lifted or lowered to safety making this a 'no risk' situation for the rescuer. Various rope lengths of up to 160m can be provided to suit requirements. Standard length is 30m.

These devices have many applications, these are as follows:

  1. Evacuation of one or more persons from a high to lower area, i.e.; cranes or hanging scaffolding
  2. No risk rescue of a suspended person using either 3.5m or 6.5m long reach pole
  3. Lifting a casualty from a lower area or from a suspended position
  4. Lowering of a casualty or stretcher
  5. Descending to a casualty to retrieve them by either lifting or lowering
  6. Confined space rescue. Either with a conventional tripod or used within a vessel to lift the casualty over baffle plates or other obstructions

The versatility of the product helps our clients become compliant in many aspects of rescue or evacuation. The need for a system that is simple to use, light, portable and efficient is hard to achieve for one scenario let alone several but we believe that we have succeeded with this product.
