Swiftwater 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 in swift water, whitewater, floods or low head dam entrapment
The RDC is easy to control, very stable and is self
righting in potential overturn situations. It paddles and ferries like
a canoe and is suitable for class or grade 5 whitewater. Where
swiftwater rescue situations permit, the RDC can be shore controlled
by tethers from one or two rescuers. Or, it can be easily paddled by
one or two rescue technicians.
The RDC is perfect as rapid response swiftwater 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 swiftwater 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 a swift water victim to pull
them into the RDC . This swiftwater 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 swiftwater situations. Please contact us today for more
