Serving the Rescue Community Since 1994

With RESCUE ALIVE the rescuer never lifts the full weight of the victim. Once the harness is secured, the victim is removed from the water by sliding the harness along the guardrails.



Thin ice is a trap and every year hundreds of people fall into that trap. Victims have only minutes to help themselves because hypothermia quickly impairs a victim's ability to hold on to ice. It makes him shiver violently and clouds his thinking. As the victim's core temperature drops, he experiences disorientation and he becomes dangerous to the rescuers. This all happens within minutes of entering the water!

Get the very best equipment for ice and cold water rescues. RESCUE ALIVE®enables your rescuer to run over very thin ice by distributing his weight over a large surface or to paddle through open water to reach a victim quickly. The unit weighs 88 pounds and provides 600 pounds of flotation. The unit is deployed by releasing one Velcro™ strap, which is then used to tether the modified paddle.

Your rescuers stay out of the water; there is no need to crawl or swim to approach a victim. Rescuers remain on top of the surface, working from the stable platform. The rescuer stays in control of the victim.

With RESCUE ALIVE, surface conditions will not delay reaching a victim. The modified paddle allows quick movement over ice too thin to walk on, and enables water to ice transitions.

With RESCUE ALIVE, rescuers save time by staying on top of the surface. Running or paddling instead of crawling or swimming.

RESCUE ALIVE eliminates the need to lift a person over the side of a boat. Avoid further injury by securing off-shore victims to the unit in a stokes basket.

RESCUE ALIVE provides fast, energy saving diver transport to a recovery location without compromising the integrity of the hole.

With RESCUE ALIVE, the rescuer always works from a position of control, above the victim in a standing or a kneeling position. Working on the surface provides speed and safety.

With RESCUE ALIVE, victims are suspended above the ice avoiding harmful dragging. The rescuer is able to focus on the victim's condition instead of struggling to reach the shore.

The RESCUE ALIVE unit can be towed behind winter off-road vehicles to safely transport people from remote areas back to plowed roads.
