Rescue Products, Inc. Introduces TracerLine Fire Safety Tool
Retractable Search Line is a Critical Life-Saving Tool for Fire and Urban Search and Rescue Industries
El Dorado Hills, CA – Rescue Products Inc., a designer and developer of safety products for fire and search and rescue teams, today introduced TracerLine, their retractable search line. Replacing unwieldy rope bags, TracerLine is a hands-free, auto-retracting, ultra-strong line encased in a fire resistant case that fits on a standard SCBA belt. Rescue Products is making the TracerLine available for the first time at the Fire Rescue International 2011 in Atlanta, GA.
“We founded the company to fill identified gaps in a firefighter’s safety equipment arsenal, and TracerLine is our first life-saving product solution,” stated Paul Misso, CEO of Rescue Products. “Firefighters and search teams need a reliable safety search line that encourages utilization, preventing accidents as a result of disorientation at rescue scenes. We are using leading-edge technology to put the best product in the hands of the people who are focused on saving the lives of others.”
The TracerLine includes a 60-foot, highly reflective line with a 1,400 pound weight rating and a 900 degree heat rating. The retractable line is housed within a casing designed to pass NFPA air pack standards. The lightweight TracerLine attaches to the SCBA or utility belt for hands-free maneuverability, and features a lighted anchor point that chocks the entry door to ensure easy access and exit. A lighted distance counter has different light patterns to ensure that the rescuer knows how far into the structure he or she is. The line retracts quickly in the case of fast exits.
The adaptability, functionality, and cost-effectiveness of the TracerLine make it a critical safety tool for individual firefighters, fire departments, US&R teams, and naval vessels. The TracerLine retails for $395, with a 10% discount for orders booked at the FRI show.
