The Cearley Rescue Strap™ was invented by Rick Cearley, a retired senior helicopter pilot from Los Angeles County Fire Dept. and the inventor of the LSP Cinch Rescue Collar. Cearley saw the need for a product to rapidly secure a victim under difficult conditions, such as swimming or ice rescues. Hand loops are sewn stiff to maintain their shape in cold conditions.
Why You Need a Rescue Strap
All firefighters should consider carrying a Cearley Rescue Strap™ in their turnout because of its many applications to quickly secure a downed firefighter who must be dragged, lifted, or lowered. It can also be used as a hasty chest harness to pluck victims from above-ground windows or during swiftwater operations, or even as an emergency harness for self-rescue from upper floors. It has proven itself with our department when lives depend on quick and simple securing of victims for evacuation. — Battalion Chief Larry Collins, Los Angeles Country Fire Department, Urban Search & Rescue Company
