Incredibly easy to use, the Rescue Stick™ provides rapid flotation assistance to a person at risk of drowning. Simply remove the baton-shaped Rescue Stick™ from its waterproof bag and throw it near the person. Once contact is made with the water it inflates in seconds to a large horseshoe shape keeping them afloat and their head above water until help arrives.
Measuring only 14" length and weighing less than 1 lb., the Rescue Stick™ is the most versatile rescue flotation device available. Easily stowed in a boat, vehicle, backpack, or by the pool, it will be accessible when and where you need it. Simple to repack and reuse.
Anyone who can throw a stick, can throw the Rescue Stick™ to someone in distress in the water. On average the Rescue Stick™ can be thrown between 100' and 150' - almost triple the distance of a typical rope bag or life ring. The inflated horseshoe will float with the person in the water.
Developed with input from Search and Rescue professionals, lifeguards, firefighters and recreational boaters the Rescue Stick provides 35 lbs of buoyancy - much more than the 7 lbs required to keep a conscious person afloat. It is easy to repack and re-arm by screwing on a replacement handle that contains the new CO2 cylinder.
In an emergency - time, distance, and the ability to provide flotation to someone rapidly are critical. In many situations, the Rescue Stick is an effective rescue tool.
