Ice rescue is safe and sure with Oceanid's RDC Rapid
Deployment Craft inflatable rescue raft. The RDC allows a rescuer or
rescue team to quickly reach a victim and safely retrieve them from a
through the ice or water cold water rescue scene.
The Rapid Deployment Craft is simply the best,
fast-response, ice rescue craft available at any price. The craft
surrounds one or more rescuers in an ultra buoyant and protective
inflated perimeter. The rescuer or rescue team can easily carry the
50-pound RDC to the edge of the ice, step into the craft, and run out
across the ice to reach a victim. While on the ice, they are protected
from falling through a fracture into the water. In a combination ice
and open water situation, the RDC can be paddled across open water or
broken ice and water by one or two rescue technicians.
The RDC is perfect as rapid response ice rescue
equipment and should be part of every rescue responder kit. Here's
- The RDC stores deflated in a 2 foot cube
- Will fit in the trunk of almost any passenger car
- Inflates in seconds
- Weights 50 pounds and can be easily carried by one person.
- Can be launched without access to a boat ramp
- Can be on the scene and in action in seconds
Watch our ice rescue demonstration video to see how
the open ends of the RDC allow a rescue technician to be positioned
over the head and shoulders of an ice rescue victim to pull them into
the RDC . This ice rescue technique avoids ever present and dangerous
situations where the rescuer becomes the victim.
The RDC should be part of your rescue responder kit
for ice rescue situations. Please contact us today for more
