The Dacon Rescue Scoop is a power-assisted method of recovery for retrieving casualties from the water directly onboard larger rescue vessels.

The Dacon Rescue Scoop is a semi-rigid, manoeuvrable rescue net operated by a standard deck crane. The rescue net is used to recover distressed persons from the water when weather or other factors make it difficult or too risky to launch a rescue craft. The Dacon Rescue Scoop will successfully recover a person from the water, without putting other crew at risk. Further on, the power- assisted method of recovery will retrieve a person in a horizontal position with full body support to avoid further injury or shock, which is a very important factor to emphasize. The crane operated rescue system requires no interaction from the casualty. Hence, the system is fully capable of rescuing severely injured or even unconscious persons. 

The power-assisted method of recovery is available in various models to fit vessels of all types and sizes. The crane operated rescue net has been fitted to Standby- and Supply vessels in the offshore industry as well as Pilot vessels, SAR, Coast Guard cutters and many others for close to 40 years. The Dacon Rescue Scoop is exported to countries all over the world.
