(complete HMD Sked Rescue System with strap kit)
This litter is designed for use in mass casualty incidents such as airline
crashes, terrorists incidents, or any other incident where large numbers of
people must be evacuated.
The HMD Sked is extremely versatile. It can be dragged over
virtually any terrain including stairways. It requires less effort
from rescuers wearing level A protection. The two inch side release
buckles on all straps are easy to handle with the thick gloves on level A or
B suits. The straps are polypropylene for resistance to chemicals.
They have sewn loops on the ends for quick attachment and removal.
Patients can be rolled onto the HMD Sked rather than lifting or carrying.
This creates less rescuer fatigue and allows many more victims to be saved.
