Nebulus Emergency Flotation Device

 

 
 
 

Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Monday, November 24, 2008


Water-rescue equipment requires proper training to use and can take upprecious space in a cramped ambulance. ThatÌs why many ambulances and other EMS vehicles are limited to a water-rescue throw rope and possibly life jackets. But theNebulus Emergency Flotation Device is a fast-deploying, inexpensive and compact life raft that provides flotation for three adults.Stored in a duffle bag, the device expands to a 5' x 3' platform. During what was easily the most fun IÌve ever had testing a product, I found that a simple tug on the large yellow handle activates the CO canister to inflate the life raft.
