Nebulus Emergency Flotation Device

Water-rescue equipment requires proper training to use and can take upÜprecious 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 theÜNebulus Emergency Flotation DeviceÜ is a fast-deploying, inexpensive and compact life raft that provides flotation for three adults.ÜStored 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.Ü
