"We are extremely honored to receive the Innovation Award for Safety for the Rescue Stick," said Frank Leffelaar, Manager Marketing Services for Mustang Survival. "The panel recognized its unique capability to rapidly provide more emergency flotation at longer distances than other devices on the market."
The Rescue StickTM is a powerful rescue tool in the hands of professionals and recreational users. Anyone who can throw a stick can throw it to someone in distress in the water. Designed to be compact (14") and lightweight (just over 1lb) it can be easily stowed in a police car trunk or emergency rescue vehicle, on a boat, at the cabin or by the pool. When the unexpected happens it will provide emergency flotation to someone at risk of drowning and increase the likelihood of self-rescue.
The Rescue StickTM:
- Can be thrown up to 100 feet - twice the distance of a ring buoy or rope bag
- Provides 35 lb. of flotation in seconds - triple that of a ring buoy
- Automatically inflates in seconds upon contact with the water
- Extremely easy to use - anyone who can throw a stick can use it
- Simple to repack and reuse - insert a new bobbin and screw in the replacement handle containing the CO2 cylinder
