Holmatro launches the Rescue Support Bag

Published:  06 July, 2011

Rescue assist tools such as seatbelt cutters and hook and fork tools are often overlooked or  misplaced at the rescue scene. To solve this problem Holmatro has designed a Rescue Support Bag containing the most frequently used assist tools during vehicle extrication.

Modern vehicles present rescuers with many challenges. The presence of passive safety systems such as airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners, which must be identified and located, coupled with stronger constructions, complicate rescuers’ efforts to extricate passengers trapped. In order to perform a safe and timely extrication, using the proper assist tools is just as important as working with the right hydraulic rescue equipment. However, since most assist tools are small, they are often overlooked or misplaced at the scene of a rescue. With the new Rescue Support Bag from Holmatro these helpful tools are always there when required, in one place and ready for use.

The tool bag has been designed with the rescuer in mind. It is lightweight and made of high-quality, fire-retardant material. In addition, it allows easy movement during the rescue operation. The bag is supplied with adjustable waist and thigh straps which are easy to secure by means of a 3-point click buckle. Holmatro’s Rescue Support Bag can also be attached to a rescuer’s belt by means of Velcro.

The Rescue Support Bag contains a tyre deflator, seatbelt cutter, window punch, flexible steel rule, marker pen, mini LED torch, multi-cutter and hook and fork tools.
