Urban Search And Rescue Cases

Urban search and rescue cases must be lightweight, easily maneuverable in tight spots, well organized, and above all, rugged. There is a wide variety of products available, ranging from fanny-pack first aid kits to survival backpacks to large wheeled tool cases. Having a range of urban search and rescue cases readily available makes it easier to respond to the unpredictable crises that may arise.

The DHS/FEMA Task Force divides equipment that should be on hand into five categories: rescue, medical, technical, logistics and communications. All of that materiel must be safely stored and scrupulously organized. The right urban search and rescue cases for each category can help.

The equipment cache used to support an urban search and rescue task force weighs nearly thirty tons and is worth about a million and a half dollars. Basically, the task force sets up a mobile emergency room, construction site, and communication center, as well as a camp for rescue workers. And all of that has to be transported quickly and efficiently to the site of the disaster.

Urban Search and Rescue Cases for Many Applications

Search and rescue equipment runs the gamut from tiny vials of antibiotics to defibrillators, from drill bits to jackhammers, from fiber optic scopes to generators to laptop computers to blankets and cots. Each piece of equipment must be securely stowed and readily accessible. Cases to organize medical and smaller rescue supplies can be bought ready made, and rack mount systems can help organize your technical and communications components. Storage and packaging of supplies is a detail not often considered by the general public, but a piece of equipment arriving safely at a rescue site can be the difference between life and death.
