Rapid Survival System

The Rapid Survival System has been a 5 year project with North Water Paddle Sports. We believe it is the most  important advancement in swiftwater rescue in many years.

This  self-rescue tool is worn like a throw bag until its needed. If you are swimming and being overcome by whitewater, entrapped and trying to keep your head to the surface or needing flotation in a hydraulic to get air and catch rope, the RSS will deliver 150lbs flotation in seconds.

SS SERIES LINE LAUNCHER

SS Series Line Launcher is one of the  most compact and useful line launchers on the market.

It was designed specifically for Swiftwater Rescue and Ski Patrol. The launcher uses 3 different  .22 caliber blank loads to launch different projectiles a range of different distances. An aluminum canister of center wound 600ft braided nylon acts as a messenger line carried by the projectile. This launcher is ideal for getting lines across canyons, rivers and over ski lift cables during lift evacuation rescues.
