ARE YOU AS SERIOUS ABOUT SAFETY AS WE ARE?

WHO ARE WE?

Rescue One Equipment is an evacuation systems company that was established in 1996 with a view to eliminate unnecessary deaths caused by smoke inhalation in the mining industry in South Africa.

We have developed life-saving evacuation systems for miners such as Lifeline® directional cone guidance system and Frontline® early warning system as well as provide refuge bay kits and the SOS trailer for emergency support on the surface, so that miners can get to a place of safety quickly, timelessly and alive when they are in danger. We now also provide Emergency Preparedness and Response training which can lead one to a safe evacuation in the case of an underground fire.

At Rescue One Equipment we provide life-saving evacuation systems that guarantee safety and provide miners with reliable self-rescue competence (attitude, knowledge and skills) .

FRONTLINE®

FRONTLINE® is an early warning detection system that will detect smoke/co from up to 1000m away from the section of the Mine where people are working. The system releases a very powerful fragrance in the Intake Air Flow System of the Mine. The fragrance is atomised in the air flow and will travel along the intake airways at the same speed as the air flow. The fragrance will then enter the working section, warning people of smoke/co that is being detected up to 1000m away.
