The RP3 is an inflatable rescue platform for the recovery of casualties primarily in flooded areas, mud, ice and marsh environments.
With catamaran style sponsons, the RP3 provides a stable working platform and with its large, flat, open-toped surface recovering casualties over the side is far simpler than with an equivalently sized rescue sled. Where necessary the platform can be used in conjunction with a rescue craft, and is easily paddled or line transferred.
When secured alongside a rescue craft the RP3 acts as a transfer platform to facilitate the recovery of casualties from the water, especially those on spinal boards.
In addition to spinal boards, a variety of different rigid stretchers designs can be secured on top of the platform and subsequently maneuvered to safety.
The rescue platform packs away into a light and compact carrying valise, and is easily inflated using bellows, pumps or a B.A. cylinder and regulator.
