Press Releases

  • Emerald Marine Products announces the release of the ALERT418™ Man-Overboard Transmitter.

  • No one wants to be OSCAR: cold, wet and brought back on deck by fellow crewmembers. The Water-Rescue Training Dummy™ from Emerald Marine Products makes it easy to practice man-overboard recoveries, without anyone jumping in.

  • La Crosse, Wisconsin-based Brennan knows the value of preparedness. Because of this, it places its trust in Emerald Marine Products' ALERT2 Man-Overboard Alarm System. Any fall is dangerous, but when it's into the cold waters of the Upper Mississippi River, response time is critical. The innovative device instantly alerts the company's crew and employees, providing the crucial extra seconds needed to successfully manage a man overboard (MOB) rescue operation.

  • Tugboat companies complying with Subchapter M regulations are required to have man overboard (MOB) procedures in place, including a way of retrieving crew who have fallen overboard. C-HERO has put together a package to help tug and barge workers fulfill this mandate, the MOB Total Solution. The system includes the C-HERO Lift™ Portable MOB Davit, C-HERO Reach™ Attachment Pole, and Emerald Marine Products' ALERT2 Man-Overboard Alarm System.

  • Professional mariners know the life-threatening hazards of falling overboard, but may not consider how critical the recovery window is, especially with a moving vessel. Compact and easily carried on a PFD, the ALERT2 Man-Overboard Alarm System from Emerald Marine Products immediately sets off a piercing audible alarm in the wheelhouse upon immersion, and can even be wired to stop an engine and/or set a waypoint on a chartplotter.
