Who Is Protected with ALERT Products?
Tow, Tug, and Barge
The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System protects crewmembers who ply the swift coastal and inland waters. “Wearing the ALERT2 gives me a real sense of security” has been echoed by employees of major towboat companies. As a member of the American Waterways Operators organization, Emerald Marine Products understands the dangerous yet vital activities of people working the Tow and Tug Industry and design our products to function in these demanding environments.
Singlehander and Blue Water Voyager
The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System was originally invented to serve the singlehander and blue water voyager. When sailing or motoring alone or with a small crew, it's imperative that in the event of a fall-overboard the engine can stop, or at a minimum alert someone to the fall-overboard. It's the precious seconds upon immersion that is the life-saving difference between the ALERT System and AIS or range dynamic systems.
Dredging, Marine Construction and Marine Terminals
Maybe your employees aren't on boats, but they work dangerously close to water. Water that could sweep them out of sight or in cold weather, restrict their muscles within minutes. The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System protects employees working near water on dredging, marine construction, or terminal operations. The ALERT Receiver can be mounted in the office or wired to communicate via an auto-dialer of HF Radio to alert of a fall-overboard situation to rescue operations.
Though a ship has its safety procedures, sometimes people on vessels are not as savvy about working near water as experienced crew. The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System is easily worn by visitors or scientists when onboard research vessels. In the event that a person loses their balance and falls overboard, the ALERT System instantly notifies the vessel for the ability to quickly rescue.
Lore and TV Shows showcase the danger involved in making a living as a commercial fisherman. The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System protects crews and solo fisherman by wearing the lightweight and durable Transmitter. This device is automatically activated in the event of a fall-overboard and its Spray-Tight Pouch will protect from false alarms when working in wet conditions. Simple mistakes can instantly take a person over the side of a boat, the ALERT System will immediately notify the vessel.
Military and Law Enforcement Vessels
Law enforcement officials operate in high stake and fast acting environments on the water. It is critical to protect these officials so that they feel confident moving quickly onboard. The ALERT Man-Overboard Alarm System is easy to setup and seamlessly attach to any PFD. The Alert System provides extra confidence and security making it possible for law enforcement officials to focus on the task at hand.
