The Dacon Rescue Frame

General Arrangement:
– A manual recovery system for gentle and effective rescue of casualties.
– Quick, safe and effective retrieval saves time for the rescue personnel.
– Folds for stowage on deck or railing. Always ready for immediate deployment.
– Requires a minimum of space on board. Will not obstruct passage even on small rescue craft.
– Doubles as an effective scrambling net for persons able to climb onboard.
– Established 20 years with a proven track record.

The Dacon Rescue Frame consists of a number of parallel fibre glass bars connected by slotted webbing.
The outer bar is equipped with flotation, a manoeuvring stick and hand-loops for easy grip.

Medical Aspects:
– The person is recovered in a horizontal position with full-length body support. This will reduce the possibility of shock and aggrevation of injuries assosiated with the recovery of hypothermic and seriously injured casualties from the water
– Detaches in seconds for use as an effevtive transport stretcher when required.

When deployed, the Rescue Frame hangs down the freeboard forming a cradle in the water.
The casualty is positioned in the cradle and gently «rolled» onboard by lifting the grip bar or the retrieval lines.
