Havospark is keen on applying the latest drone technology to water safety and rescue industry and is committed to provide a safe water environment for all people through providing professional water rescue solutions for including beach & ocean rescue, river & flood rescue, search, and recovery on waters scenarios. Up till now, hundreds of customers across the world including fire departments, maritime, flood control, coastal services, lifesaving associations, etc are equipped with equipment of Havospark.
During a water rescue, mostly used equipment are PFD (personal flotable devices), rescue boats, rescue tethers, throw bags, ring buoy that are typically available to pro rescue teams or fire departments to cope with scenarios ranging from flooding, swift water to accidental drownings.
Call pro rescuers. If you have someone else at the scene, or you have a phone, call 911 and report the exact location.
Stay safe. Make sure not to endanger yourself. Wear a personal flotation device if available.
Try reaching the patient with an intermediary tool. If not available, throw a rope and encourage the victim to grab on. If possible, do not attempt to directly touch a panicking drowning victim to avoid possible danger (or use Havospark Hover Ark H3).
If the victim is unconcious or unresponsive, take a boat to the victim, or run a rope around the victim's waist and then pull him or her back (or use Havospark Orca H9 lifesaving watercraft).
Perform basic first aid once the victim is safe. If possible, remove wet clothing and cover with a warm blanket.
To be used when the person in trouble, based on your own judgement, is capable of making his or her way out of danger if you can talk to the person, make him or her calm down.
To be used when the person is not far from the boat/bank/shore and is unable to swim back. A rigid intermediary, i.e. stick, oar, tree branch will be good.
Throwing a rope, or life ring with rope attached when the person is quite far away, but within a throw distance. Yet the rescuer can't swim.
If the throw rescue doesn't work, the rescuer can swim and there are no unknown dangers in the water.
If none of the above methods work.
