PRLog - Nov. 21, 2012 - The new system is a rapidly inflated walkway that has been developed to enable emergency service teams to safely traverse soft mud, ice or deep snow and reach victims in distress.
Launching a section of the Zodiac Rescue Track
The new Zodiac MILPRO Rescue Track is carried as a compact package that is inflated in seconds from a standard breathing apparatus compressed air cylinder. It immediately creates a safe and durable walkway, 1.3-metres wide, over potentially dangerous surfaces.
The Zodiac MILPRO Rescue Track system is available in five or 10-metre lengths. These can be joined as often as necessary to create safe access to a victim who may, for example, have fallen though ice in the centre of a lake. The new system has also been designed for use in conjunction with Zodiac MILPRO inflatable boats such as the ERB 400 which is now in use with 15 fire and rescue services in Britain and many more overseas.
The Zodiac MILPRO Rescue Track is expected to prove especially popular with fire and rescue services whose operational areas include marshes and river estuaries. The Rescue Track now makes it possible for crews to transport their rescue boat across expanses of exposed mud and launch it in open water close to the incident they are attending. Because the Rescue Track is fully buoyant it will remain available for use as it floats on an incoming tide.
The Rescue Track is manufactured in the Zodiac MILPRO factory in South Wales, UK, using the famously rugged combination of hypalon/CSM and polyester fabric. The durability of Zodiac MILPRO products combined with the exceptional service support from global network can be expected to provide the Rescue Track with a long working life that translates into exceptional value for money when set against tightly constrained budgets.
Zodiac MILPRO is widely respected as the world’s most famous name for semi-rigid and inflatable boats. It supplies craft for professional users such as fire and rescue teams, police, coast guard, special forces, the offshore industry and other military users. The boats it manufactures range from 4m to 12m long and are available in configurations that include inflatable and rigid inflatable boats with aluminium or fibreglass hull designs, inflatable or foam tubes, diesel inboard or petrol outboard engines.
