Equipment Hire

There is a considerable amount of equipment on the market designed for the numerous hazards connected with confined space situations. It is therefore easy to order and be supplied with the wrong equipment, or equipment not suitable for a particular problem.

MRS Training & Rescue exhaustively tests equipment for their own Training Centres and before use by their own Entry and Rescue Teams. Only after such tests will MRS Training & Rescue supply this equipment through the online equipment catalogue.

Where standard equipment cannot be used or is unsuitable for the task, specialised equipment can be designed that will be suitable for the purpose.

Contact your nearest centre for more information about hiring equipment, or complete the enquiry form on the right.

Sabre MARS Manual and Automatic Resuscitation System

Sabre MARS is the result of extensive research and development; the culmination of Sabre’s 20 years’ experience in the manufacture of resuscitators.

All models are designed to meet BS6850:1987 for ventilator resuscitators. Whilst there are many versions of the Sabre MARS, they are all based on the same design philosophy enabling the carer to concentrate on looking after the patient, not on operating the equipment.

With Sabre MARS the operator does not have to make judgements on the lung capacity of the patient to select a tidal volume; only the basic size or type of patient being cared for. Once this simple operation has been made the MARS will control both tidal volume and pulse frequency within the parameters laid down in the British Standards.

Even if the wrong setting is selected there is no risk of over inflating the patient’s lungs. The MARS always ‘fails safe’ and will vent excess gas whilst giving the operator an audible warning that the equipment is not being used correctly.

The performance specifications shown are common to all MARS units but it must be emphasised that MARS is available as a range of products designed to meet various operational requirements. The purpose of the downloadable brochure is to indicate the options available.
