Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Wednesday, August 22, 2007


ManyEMS workers carry some sort of pocketknife for those occasions when trauma shears just wonÌt cut it. The Kershaw Rescue Blur has features specifically designed for rescuers, including a spring-assisted blade that deploys rapidly with only one hand, and a stainless-steel blade with a rounded tip for added safety in close quarters. ThereÌs a carbide tip at the base of the handle for breaking glass, and anodized aluminum handles with Trac-Tec inserts for a non-slip grip even when wet.
