With RESCUE ALIVE the rescuer always works from a position of control above the victim in a standing or kneeling position. This is very important when dealing with an unresponsive or panicked victim.. 600 lbs. of flotation allows the tethered rescuer to focus on the victim and not his own safety.
RESCUE ALIVE can be towed behind winter off road vehicles to transport injured hunters or skiers to plowed roads.
