  • Recovering someone who has fallen into the water is no easy task, especially if the victim is unconscious or lethargic due to cold temperatures. Training is essential to prepare potential rescuers for how difficult it can actually be. The OSCAR Water-Rescue Training Dummy™ from Emerald Marine Products is used by safety instructors across North America for teaching people what it's like to retrieve a lifeless, 180 lb. adult.

  • Safety is important on any boat, even more so when scientists and inexperienced students are working on deck. The School of Oceanography at the University of Washington protects those on board its two research vessels with Emerald Marine Products' ALERT Man-Overboard (MOB) Alarm Systems™. If someone should fall overboard, an alarm instantly sounds, providing critical extra time for a successful recovery in the cold Pacific Northwest waters and points beyond. The university purchased ALERT2 systems for its 274' R/V Thomas G. Thompson and 66' R/V Clifford A. Barnes.

  • Employers who invest in an ALERT418™ Man-Overboard Alarm System from Emerald Marine Products demonstrate a firm commitment to safety for their employees. Workers at marine terminals and construction sites are protected when working around water, especially when out of sight of each other.

  • Blue water cruisers, sailors and mega yacht deckhands understand the seriousness of a man-overboard situation. When every second matters, the key to a successful recovery is a quick response by crew. Emerald Marine Products' ALERT418™ Man-Overboard System is a water-activated transmitter that instantly sets off a cabin or helm alarm when submerged, without the delay common with systems that rely on satellite signals.
