The Water Rescue dummies are used extensively by NATO forces, British and US Navies, UK Fire Services and all the sea rescue agencies.
Originally developed in conjunction with the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (R.N.L.I), Greater Manchester Fire Service Water Incident Support Section and the British Navy; these dummies perfectly simulate unconscious casualties in water.
They will float at an angle of approx 45 degrees with just the head and shoulders being visible, however the overalls supplied have integral pockets to the front that enable the user to add buoyancy or weight as required, to alter the dummy's position in the water.
The Search and Rescue model is supplied with black overall, stable boots and a black mesh hood to cover the head; the idea is to make it as inconspicuous as possible to enable the rescue teams to practice their search, as well as their recovery techniques.
