It is common knowledge that lifting a casualty with wet clothes from the water up into a rescue boat is heavy and can be very difficult even with a low freeboard. The Dacon Rescue Frame attach to the railing of the rescue craft so that the person operating it only needs to lift half the weight of the person in distress. It is quick and efficient to use and saves valuable time in a critical situation. When rolled up for stowage the rescue frame takes up a minimum of space and will not hinder passage even on small rescue craft. It also doubles as an effective scrambling net for persons able to climb on board.
Dacon Rescue Frame comes in an all-black Navy Edition for Navy, Coast guard and Police authorities. It has the same function and specification as the standard Rescue Frame apart from the color.
The person is recovered in a horizontal position with full body support. This will reduce the possibility of shock and aggrevation of injuries associated with the recovery of hypothermic and seriously injured casualties.
