Seconds can mean the difference between Life and Death
In emergency situations, fast response is critical to victim recovery. Winter conditions along with broken ice and slushy open water multiply the effort required to reach the victim in a timely manner. Hypothermia can happen in minutes! Current manual methods are effective if the location of the victim is known and close to shore, but what if the location is unknown or several hundred yards or more off shore, beyond where tether systems can comfortably reach?
In an effort to develop a safer and more responsive solution to ice and cold water emergencies, WISE Technology, based in Gilford, NH, has produced a unique amphibious vehicle specifically for ice and cold water situations. The AIR (Amphibious Ice Rescue) Responder is designed to handle any ice conditions. The patented hull allows the AIR Responder to move agilely from one surface to another whether its ice, broken ice, snow or open water. Whatever the surface conditions, the AIR Responder handles them with safety and certainty.
WISE Technology’s AIR Responder is the first of its kind, designed specifically for ice rescue. The low center-of-gravity along with the foam filled hull makes the Responder incredibly stable and essentially unsinkable. The flat deck of almost 35 square feet, the very low freeboard of mere inches along with the integrated edge rollers makes victim recovery simple and quick.
With the AIR Responder one can safely reach, recover, and return a victim to shore before other systems are even deployed! The Responder is powered by an un-modified, well understood, easily controlled snowmobile. There is no mystery, no steep learning curve, it performs and handles the way your experience expects.
