da orffo|Rescue Trailer is a concept of a transport module for rescue services designed to carry specialist equipment on the tough terrain, including an off-road vehicle inaccessible.
The project was initiated and developed in cooperation with the Polish Mountain Rescue Institute (PIRG), to fit the needs of GOPR services (Voluntary Mountain Rescue Organization ) during cave rescue actions, but the trailer can be used in various kinds of actions.
Division into zones, organization and clear location of equipment accelerate the response time of rescuers during the action and facilitate decision-making regarding the use of equipment.
The readiness of the set for a possible call, as well as the ability to quickly pack the equipment, shortens the time of travel to the victim and return to the base.
Units of all types of special services may have several modules configured for a given type of action, ready to be mounted interchangeably: on a trailer chassis, on skids or attached to a helicopter.
Simple construction, limitation of mechanical and electrical solutions, reduce production costs and eliminate the probability of failure.
The perforation of the internal bulkheads allows for the freedom in the load arrangement, and the folded walls of the outer shell allow for the equipment to be put “loose” in the event of a quick evacuation.
Rescue Trailer is a specialist product. It can be delivered in a universal configuration or according to the user's special assumptions.
