OSCAR is designed and built to easily simulate the most realistic man-overboard rescue training of a human being. Training rescue crews using OSCAR will ensure that they are prepared to lift and move an adult-sized human out of the water.
“OSCAR” is a man-overboard dummy used for training water rescue personnel. OSCAR is designed for easy transport to your training location. He weighs 35 pounds dry and 180 pounds when filled with water to replicate the size and weight of an adult.
Constructed for Realistic Rescue Simulation
OSCAR floats at chest level like a human. At 180 pounds, he provides a very realistic human size and weight to properly train your rescue team for the recovery of a victim out of the water and into a rescue craft.
Quickly Set up and Take down Training
Before use, the bladders are filled with fresh or saltwater from a deck hose. After the training exercise, the bladders can be drained for transport and stowage. A galvanized shackle allows easy lifting from the shoulder.
Durable and Built to Last
OSCAR is manufactured from extremely tough vinyl impact bladders with stainless steel joints to withstand repetitive drops overboard from any realistic height.
