Rescue Fall Protection Equipment

First responders need to be equipped with all the necessary rescue fall protection equipment to ensure the safety of others along with their own.

Rescue fall protection equipment could be the determining factor between life and death. First responders need to be equipped with all the necessary equipment to ensure the safety of others along with their own.

AirPads are perfect for any emergency at great heights.  Here are some of the most common emergency situations and how Airpads can help:

High-Rise Building Fire and Rescue

According to a report done by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 14,500 structure fires per year in high-rise buildings between 2009 to 2013. These fires caused an annual average of 40 civilian deaths and 520 civilian damages.

In the same report, most high-rise building fires begin on floors no higher than the sixth story with dorms and apartments leading the way statistically at 47 and 41 percent, respectively.

In turn, high-rise buildings tend to have more occupants and a longer distance to the exit making fire prevention and fire protection measures essential.

AirPads are fully customizable and provide a versatile feel. First responders can regulate the pressure within the AirPad, making it soft or hard to satisfy customer needs while maintaining unbeatable softness and reliability.

Rescue and Descent (Rescue/Descent)

With Rescue and Descent devices, some are more situational-based than generalized. This can make trying to find the one perfect rescue/descent device next to impossible, leading to costly and inefficient tool stocking. Also, rescue efforts can be delayed.  Because rescuers are limited to a single person at a time per piece of equipment. AirPads save precious seconds because multiple workers can fall simultaneously and as close as 24″ apart without danger.

Confined Space Rescue

Our AirPad can be made to fit almost any confined space’s dimensions or shape. This makes an i2k AirPad an ideal fall rescue solution for confined space rescue.

What are 3 Types of Fall Protection Devices?

According to OSHA, falls are the leading cause of fatalities in construction, accounting for about one-third of all fatalities in the industry.

While frequent, these types of deaths can be prevented. The three different categories types of fall protection devices are:

  • Fall Prevention
