SAVER Summary: Rescue Boards [September 2010]   [open pdf - 630KB]

"A rescue board is a specialized, rapidly deployable craft for water and ice rescue operations. Emergency responders use these boards to conduct search and rescue response efforts for victims in marine environments. These efforts include medically stabilizing and extricating victims in the shortest amount of time while maintaining rescuer safety. The boards can be used in floodwaters, swift water, and rip currents, and during ocean surf and ice rescues."
