Water rescue is a dangerous and difficult job. When rescuers are out on rocky waters or delicate ice, they need reliable equipment that they can trust to keep them afloat in order to save lives. SIT understands that first responders need the best equipment to do the tough jobs and that’s why they have made it their mission to produce high quality and innovative rescue equipment.
One example of SIT’s innovative designs is the ResQsled Endurance, an inflatable raft designed to keep first responders safe and stable during water rescue. It is ideal for water, ice, mud, or or soft terrain rescue. Thanks to extrastabilization tubes at either end, the ResQsled Endurance is made to provide superb stability when dealing with fast-moving waters and low-head dams. With the extra support, rescuers are able to reach victims from both ends and do so
safely. The Endurance comes fitted with five tethering points, two at the front and two at the rear of the sled and one on the underside. The Endurance weighs in at a manageable 62lbs and provides over 1,100lbs of usable buoyancy.
