The Pick-Of-Life is used as a life saving device for anyone venturing out onto the ice. The Pick-Of-Life is a life saving tool which enables a person who breaks through the ice to rescue himself or herself. The set consists of two 4" (10cm) floatable plastic cylinders, connected by a cord that easily fits into a pocket. Each cylinder contains a sturdy steel pick that is protected by a retractable, spring loaded guard. When plunged into the ice, the guard retracts, allowing the pick to penetrate the ice. The person who breaks through the ice uses one in each hand, and with a hand over hand stabbing action, alternately plunges the picks into the ice, thereby pulling oneself in a prone position across until reaching firm ice. The set is bright orange for easy visibility. Nylon pouch available for easy carrying.

SWITLIK MRP-10 MK-II (Catalog #mrp-10)

Originally designed for airport crash/rescue teams, the Marine RescuePlatform is now available to owners of smaller vessels.

Inflated by CO2, the Marine Rescue Platform is ready for boarding in seconds. It’s appropriate for use aboard smaller vessels, where stowage space is limited.  Weighing less than 40lbs, the Marine Rescue Platform is available in soft valise or attractive, compact fiberglass container with optional aluminum deck mounting cradle.

Throwable, Inflatable Buoyancy Aid with Rescue Line

The TECHFLOAT is unequalled in its design for aiding in the rescue of a person in the water. Packed in one small, light pouch is both a rugged, bagged, heaving line and an automatic inflatable buoyant device which will provide 25lbs. of buoyancy after inflation. This is an excellent device for all boats from 12 feet to 200 feet. Particularly aboard boats that connot use MOMs, Lifeslings, etc. A number of trained rescue agencies have adopted the TECHFLOAT as their primary water rescue device for open waters, harbors, lakes, pools and beaches.

Standard Features

All-in-one- Lightweight safety
The Techfloat is an all in one unit that can be conveniently stored at the helm of a small boat or strategically placed in several locations on larger yachts.  Its light weight design and football like shape allow you to easily throw.
Excellent Flotation – 25lbs of buoyancy
With 25lbs (11.3 kg) of inflatable buoyancy the Techfloat provides excellent flotation to allow the victim relax and focus on being rescued. The horseshoe design is easy to get into while the quick release buckle will keep you secured to the unit.
75’ of line – Easy retrieval
Holding the end of the line, the Techfloat can be easily thrown. The neatly flaked floating line will pay out effortlessly as the Techfloat soars through the air.

**NEW!** RiverX Rescue Board by Extractor


The new generation in small, swift water rescue and recreational flotation devices, the RIVERx board features improves function, durability and affordability over other existing products used today. Attributes include rotomolded superlinear polyethylene shell (like kayaks), drain/vent plug, dished deck, forearm elbow wells, 3/8" thick deck cushion, sturdy flexible handgrips for multiple persons or for body positioning, and holes for rope use in performing ferry angles and ice rescues. Additionally, the sled length has been increased in order to provide extra flotation and torso to mid-thigh rock and debris protection, not available in traditional bodyboards. Not featured in any other swift water rescue or recreational river board (hydrospeed or sledge) on the market, are the deep channels and reverse chines. These are important features which enable the rider to direct and carve turns. Without them, the rider cannot adequately maneuver the board where he/she wants it to go, and a great deal of side skipping is experienced. The RIVERx is a very secure platform to ride on, even while wearing a bulky pfd.

Dimensions and Weight: 55" x 24" x 6" at thickest point, 18lbs
Materials: Rotomolded Polyethylene - Hollow Core with vent/drain plug
Color: Yellow with Red Hand Grips and Black 3/8" thick comfortable PVC deck padding.


The RDC Emergency Response Craft                  Catalog #RDC15           

The RDC can stretch your tight resources by giving you a do it all, human powered, rescue boat.  If you do water rescue work, this boat should be along on every call.  The RDC paddles like a fast canoe, has the flotation of a raft and is as easy to mount as a surfboard.  It will store in a small package, deploy in a heartbeat and last for a decade.  There is no other boat that has as many applications or is as safe.  Whether on thin ice, fast current or deep mud, the Fortuna offers an extremely safe and mobile platform for the less than friendly environment.  The two access ports allow the responder to walk, crawl, swim or wade out to the victim.  Upon reaching the scene, one person can easily lift the victim up through the access hole or over the low freeboard sides.  It can be inflated with a hand pump or compressed air in a couple of minutes and can support several people in multiple victim incidents.

Hawill's Water Rescue Throw Bags are used anywhere the potential for a water related emergency exists, such as white water rafting, boating or any related water sport. Throw bags are a superior alternative to heaving lines and ring buoys as bags can be thrown further and with greater accuracy. Our bags do the job better, quicker and more efficiently than any of the previously mentioned methods. Directions for use are printed on the bag. Using our bags is simple and foolproof. To Use: open the top of the bag, withdraw several feet of rope and hold on to it. Toss the bag (underhand) to the person in the water, then pull the person to safety. If you miss, pull the bag back allowing the rope to pile up at your feet. Fill the bag with water and toss the bag again while holding on to the end of the rope.


The Water Rescue Throw Bag is available in the following standard specifications or with custom lengths and/or specialized ropes upon request. Please call us for more information.

70' x 3/8" Solid Braid Polypro STANDARD Throw Bag (Catalog #1870)
50' x 3/8" Solid Braid Polypro BOATER Throw Bag (Catalog #1850)

**NEW!** Reach Safety System by CrossLine (Catalog #clrss)


In water sports such as kayaking and whitewater rafting, each member of the boating team attaches a Reach Safety System to their PFD or strong-swimmer belt. The Reach System consists of three main components: a small, specially designed throwbag, 60 feet of strong spectra/polypro floating rope, and the revolutionary Reach Device™ (patents pending). The Reach is an elegant mechanical device with one simple yet important job: securely capture another line from afar. When the Reach Device is thrown across any line, rope or cable, it will Cross, Clip & Capture™ that line as securely as a carabiner. The entire system (which weighs less than 1.5 pounds) is easily attached to each individual's PFD, belt, or boat.

If a team member falls into the water, gets pinned or entrapped, or is swept downstream, he or she detaches their Reach Throwbag and releases it (in swiftwater), or throws it overhand like a football (in open water). This feeds out the rope and provides a long tag line to the victim. Other team members become instant rescuers, throwing their own Reach Device anywhere across the victim's line. When a rescuer cross-clips the victim's tag line, they can immediately pull the victim out of danger, bringing them back to the boat or over to shore.

The Reach can be used to clip any line with an object at the end, including a buoy, throwbag, another boat, a fixed line overhead, or even bushes near the shoreline. The Reach is intuitive to use, but as with any new tool, training and practice are required. The Reach System comes with extensive instructions in writing and on video.


WARNING: Do not use the rope in water rescue bags for rappelling or vertical rescue; it is designed for water rescue.
