Operating any kind of equipment on or near water can lead to an unexpected and dangerous situation. Have you ever given thought to what you would do if your machine slips sideways into the water and rolls over? You find yourself upside down with water filling the cab. Where is your door? Which way is up? How long can you hold your breath?
Our underwater egress training course is specially designed to help you keep your calm and get out alive. The underwater egress dunker is a simulated single or multi person equipment enclosed cab. When placed in the water, we can simulate an equipment roll over. Our course is designed to promote success, starting with a simple roll over to build participants confidence and progressing increasing in difficulty to no-visibility and blocked exits to ensure participants are prepared for real world situations. We are able to conduct multiple scenarios while still maintaining a realistic, safe and controlled

Life preserver demonstration: each participant dons a zero-buoyancy life preserver and inflates it in the pool. Survival techniques are practiced such as how to assist an injured person in the water, how to travel through the water in a group and ways to minimize the effects of hypothermia.
Life raft drill: participants practice getting out of the water onto a floating vessel dressed in their full gear and life preserver.

When every second counts...EBS is a compressed air emergency breathing device to provide extra time underwater in an emergency. Just by inserting the mouth piece in to your mouth and inhaling (SpareAir system) you can have 30 seconds to 5 minutes of life-saving air. The availability of compressed air nearly triples the amount of time participants can remain submerged.
