Using the Reach and Rescue Pole

The pole is a telescopic devise that extends and contracts. The top metal collar holds all the attachments. Below are the basic steps for use:
 
  1. Extend top yellow section by 60cm and slide on the yellow spherical float ball. This should be slid down blue end first with the locking collar towards to the top of the pole
  2. Tighten the float collar until the float remains firmly in place
  3. Choose the applicable attachment from the selection. This slides over the top collar and the double sprung buttons should be pushed in and allowed to spring out of the location holes on each attachment collar
  4. Extend pole by lifting the lever towards the top of the pole and pulling out the section. When a red band is seen, push this back in until it is hidden. Then, arch the lever downwards until it stops, the upper tube is now held.
  5. Repeat the above process (4) until the desired length is achieved
  6. The float will take the weight of the pole and you can swing it through the water to achieve the desired location.
  7. Closing the pole is the reverse of the above. However, during victim retrieval another technique is to pull the entire opened pole, hand over hand, behind your body for more speed should this be necessary.
