WASP Rescue created an innovative monitoring system designed to protect emergency service workers and members of the public.
The innovative, highly portable device was designed to provide warning of movement for emergency service personnel.
Working in conjunction with WASP co-founder Matt Keogh, a serving member of Greater Manchester Fire Brigade and UK International Search and Rescue team our engineers created a tough, durable and highly accurate early warning device.
The WASP attaches to any surface in any position using a variety of attachments, supplied with each unit. and can detect movement from 0.1° to 2.6°
It can detect movement from 0.1° to 2.6° and / or vibration from 0.5 Hz to 100 Hz and will alarm to alert users.
The WASP is useful in a variety of scenarios that could include:
- Collapsed structures
- Road traffic collisions
- Trench rescues
- Shoring systems movement
- Structural fires
- Internal breach operations
- Dangerous building structures following fire / flood or other incidents
The WASP was launched in September 2016 and is now being used by a number of UK fire brigades, it is part of the official UKISAR rescue kit and is used around the world including the USA, Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, China and Finland.
