Rescue Sled (RS)

The RS Series Rescue Sleds are flood water rescue craft for inshore crisis rescues and flooded urban and coastal areas. Fully inflatable, the Rescue Sled is lightweight and portable. It is easy to manoeuvre, and can be paddled or pulled by hand. The rescue sled is perfect for casualty rescue in flood situations.

With a flat bottom the sled is stable and can be used in shallow water from as little as 50mm in depth The low open stern on all RS Sleds make casualty recovery far easier. Wheel chair users can also easily board and demount the craft. Once on the sled, individuals can sit on the floor surrounded by the inflatable tubes, offering a comfortable and reassuring rescue environment. The Rescue Sled is available in five standard sizes; 3, 5, 6, 10 and 15 man. The 3, 5 and 6 man sleds are ideal for swift-water and narrow access rescue, while the 10 and 15 man sleds have a larger floor space and load capacity. Larger sizes (up to 45 man) can be manufactured on request.
