CMC ProTech BiWire Carabiners


Wire gate carabiners are popular in the climbing world because of their light weight and high strength. CMCs BiWire adds a new dimension to the concept by creating what is effectively a locking wire-gate carabiner. This patentpending design features an outer gate which protects the inner gate and prevents rope or hardware from opening it. Two distinct and opposite actions are required to open the gate. Even though the wires look thin, the BiWires minor axis strength is comparable to a conventional gated carabiner.

CMC Rescue Double Brake Escape Artist


THE MOST ADVANCED DESCENT CONTROL DEVICE AVAILABLE
Some users were concerned that in a panic situation, a firefighter might squeeze the handle of their descender and not be able to stop. The unique design of the Double Brake Escape Artist eliminates that concern. You release the handle to stop, but if you squeeze too hard, the Double Brake Escape Artist will slow or stop your descent.

Firefighter Retrieval System


The Firefighter Retrieval Kit has the tools to accomplish a horizontal or vertical evacuation of a downed firefighter as well as providing you with a means of escape. The single pulley allows the rescuer to build a 2:1 mechanical advantage for assistance in dragging an incapacitated firefighter across the floor. By rigging the single and double pulleys and connecting to a high point, a 3:1 mechanical advantage can be built to raise a downed firefighter up and over a window sill or other obstruction and down to a safe haven. You can also use the Survivor 8 to lower yourself or another firefighter to safety.

When to Retire a Rescue Harness


The service life of a rescue harness is closely related to that of a rescue ropeboth are used in the same environments, both are made from nylon or polyester, and both receive similar levels of inspection and care. Since harnesses are worn on the body, they are generally better protected than ropes. However, harnesses rely on stitching to hold them together, and because of threads small diameter, it can be more susceptible to abrasion, aging, and chemical damage than web or rope. Industry standards range from as little as a 2-year service life for fall protection and sport climbing harnesses to a 10-year maximum service life for kernmantle rescue ropes. This suggests a 10-year maximum shelf life for harnesses, with a shorter service life based on frequency of use. If there is any doubt about the safety of the harness, it should be removed from service.

CMC RESCUE HARNESSES

Harness Standards Are There to Protect the Rescuer


When rappelling or stretcher tending, rescuers are usually already at the end of the rope and are not likely to fall. Working near the edge has a potential for a fall, but fortunately falls of the severity simulated in the standards happen very seldom. This is particularly true with the NFPA 1983 requirement that after a head-up fall, the harness is subjected to a second, head-down fall. The static test loads the attachment points on the harness to more than 10 times the weight of a rescuer. Not only is the test conducted in the normal head-up position, but also in a head-down position, requiring the harness to demonstrate its strength no matter which direction the rescuer moves. A rescue harness is tested to measure its performance as a finished product. The severity of the tests provide excellent assurance that the harness will perform exceptionally well under normal use. What is very difficult to write into the standard is the human factorthe ease of donning and comfort. Through our own experiences with CMC harnesses and feedback from our customers, we pay attention to donning and comfort, as well as building strength into our harness designs.

Escape Belt a belt with at least one attachment point and is an emergency self-rescue device.

NFPA Standard 1983 Life Safety Harness and Belt Performance Requirements
The test method in the standard requires a static test and a drop test. The static test differentiates between load bearing attachment points and positioning attachment points with different load requirements for each. Where attachment points such as shoulder or side D-rings are intended to be used in pairs, the test will be done in pairs.

At CMC We Test and Test and Test


CMCs instructors and engineers are a curious lot, always asking what would happen if they did . We also get a lot of what if questions from students and customers. Since weve always been interested in answering as many of them as possible, weve always done a lot of product testing. Our test tower allows us to conduct product performance tests like the NFPA harness static test (left) and drop test (above). We are also able to test belay and anchor systems with dynamic or static loading. As we experiment with new design ideas and different rescue systems, were able to see what works best from a laboratory perspective. Through trials in the field and feedback from students in rescue school classes, we add real world input to come up with the best products possible.

Static Test Requirements for Load Bearing Attachment Points


Test

Position

Class I 3,597 lbf. (16 kN) None None

Class II 3,597 lbf. (16 kN) None None

Class III 3,597 lbf. (16 kN) 2,248 lbf. (10 kN) None

Ladder Belt 2,923 lbf. (13 kN) None 2,248 lbf. (10 kN)

Escape Belt 2,923 lbf. (13 kN) None None

Head up Head down Horizontal

Positioning attachment point requirements are 2,923 lbf. (13 kN) for the head-up test and 2,248 lbf. (10 kN) for a horizontal test.

Drop Testing Requirements


Harnesses and escape belts are also required to pass a drop test for each attachment point. The test method uses a 300 lb. (136 kg) manikin dropped one meter on a 1.2 meter steel lanyard. Each sample is tested with a head-up drop and a head down drop.

Fall Arrest and the Combo Harness


In ANSI Z359.0, the definition of a chest-waist harness excludes a combo harness from the fall arrest standard since the chest and pelvic sections of the harness can be separated. NFPA 1983 does allow a combo harness to be certified as a Class 3 harness and the CMC ProSeries Combo and the CMC Roco Combo harness are classified to that standard.

CMC ProTech Fire-Rescue Harness


always look for the label
To meet or exceed the requirements of NFPA Standard 1983, the product must be listed by a third party certification organization, such as Underwriter Laboratories. Look for the label. If the product is not labeled in accordance with the certification requirements, then the product does not meet or exceed the requirements.

Sternum D-Ring for tower climbing, limited fall protection, or hoist operations

CMCs unique Dorsal D-Ring design allows a fixed D that will not slide up when loaded, but can easily be adjusted to the most comfortable position

The Advantage of the Fixed Dorsal D-Ring


While the dorsal D-ring on CMC Fire Rescue and Riggers harnesses adjusts so it can be properly positioned, it is designed to not slide up when the D-ring is loaded. If the force of loading the harness, either under normal use or a fall, slides a dorsal D-ring up towards the back of the users head, the webbing going over the shoulders could pinch in towards the users neck. This has the possibility of not only discomfort, but even compromising the carotid arteries with severe results. By having the dorsal D-ring securely attached (fixed) to the rear waist portion of the harness, the harness design not only eliminates this hazard from taking place but also allows the peak impact force of the fall to be absorbed by the pelvis and the thighs, as opposed to the back, increasing rescuer comfort and safety.

Waist D-Ring for comfortable, secure position on rappel

The waist belt offers improved comfort and is lined with breathable D3-Cloth for better air circulation

Mil-Spec Web provides greater durability

CMC ProTech Haz-Mat Extrication Harness


The Haz-Mat Extrication Harness was designed with input from Phoenix Fire Captain Mark Delima as an extrication device for personnel wearing Level-A chemical protective clothing (NFPA 472). The harness is worn over the garment and incorporates a dorsal attachment point for lifting or lowering the rescuer. The web straps of the harness also provide easy grab points if an incapacitated rescuer needs to be lifted or moved. The harness may also be used with other bulky protective wear such as immersion or ice rescue suits. Because of the unknown level of exposure to chemical atmospheres or direct chemical contact inherent in a hazardous materials incident, haz-mat equipment is usually required to be disposable. Although designed to be a one-time-use harness, the Haz-Mat Extrication Harness is made by CMC with the same care and quality materials as all CMC harnesses and can be reused if deployed in non-toxic atmospheres. One size fits most personnel. Weight: 1 lb. 12 oz. (794 g). Item #202910 $115.00

Todays harness has molded waist and leg pads for greater comfort, a rear waist D-ring for travel restraint, and gear slings on each side. With over a quarter century of use-inspired evolution, the CMC Rescue Harness continues to offer the rescuer superb comfort and performance. Weight: 3 lbs. (1.4 kg)

CMC Rescue Survivor products


The Survivor product line began with a fire department request for a ladder belt that had the comfort and quality of a CMC harness. Based on the traditional ladder belt that provided fall restraint and basic tool-carrying capability, we added comfort features and the strength necessary to meet the requirements of NFPA Standard 1983. CMC has continued to expand the product line for fire ground belts and harnesses by combining our design and engineering with ongoing input from firefighters. The Survivor can significantly increase the safety of firefighters by providing more and better options for fall restraint and emergency escape.

A removable front pad and the reinforced rear edge are features requested by trailing dog handlers.

The front pocket is the place to keep things you do not want in your pants pocket, but do not want to drop either, like keys or pagers. The small side pocket will also hold scissors or a safety knife. The carabiner loops allow you to clip off runners to the outside of the bag or put a safety tether on tools you might be using.

CMC Rescue Com-Center Radio Harness


Have you noticed that while radios are getting smaller, we are carrying more and more electronics? The Com-Center is designed to fit the smaller radio units but also have a place for your cell phone and GPS. It also has a number of design features that add to the comfort. The strap system is wider and the elasticized waist strap carries more of the weight, reducing the load on the shoulders. The shoulder straps adjust at the front, eliminating any buckles or adjusters over the shoulder or under shoulder straps. The front pocket with flap fits most cell phones and small GPS units. (During field tests, we found that the Garmin eTrex units maintained their satellite reception when carried in the pocket.) The back of the panel is padded with D3 Cloth for comfort and breathability. The full-size back pocket is big enough for a notebook or folded map. Radio pocket is adjustable for a secure fit and a zippered front pocket can be used to hold spare batteries or other small items. Color: Black. Weight: 12.8 oz.

HARDWARE | carabiner performance requirements

What Is 3 MBS?
You might think that determining the strength of a carabiner or other piece of rescue equipment would be relatively easy. But, even with metals like aluminum and steel, two identical carabiners will break at slightly different forces. Maybe only a hundred pounds of difference, but still different. Breaking five samples, as called for by the NFPA test method, provides five different results. If only the average breaking strength is reported, the odds that your carabiner is weaker than that average are pretty good. Even if the strength of the weakest carabiner is used as the rating, there is still a possibility that your carabiner could be weaker, and there is no way to know how much weaker. The industry solution has been to use a statistical formula, referred to as three sigma (3). The minimum breaking strength calculation arrived at with that formula is 99.87% reliable. NFPA 1983 specifies a performance standard for rescue equipment. For example, a general-use carabiner must have a 3 sigma minimum breaking strength of at least 40 kN (8,992 lbf). The test method requires five samples and a 3 MBS is calculated. The 2006 edition of the standard allows the manufacturer to label the product with the MBS required by the standard or any higher number that is not more than the actual 3 MBS calculated from the test results of the five samples. CMC feels that the user is best served if we label our hardware with the minimum MBS required by the standard, while providing the actual 3 MBS figures in our literature. During the process of our new product development, there was not enough time for Underwriters Laboratories to test all of CMCs products before the publication of this catalog. Where we do not have test results that provide the calculated MBS, we have left the MBS blank. If the product is marked as meeting the standard, then you know that it meets the MBS required by the standard and is marked accordingly. For the actual 3 MBS or any questions regarding product performance, please give us call or check our website at www.cmcrescue.com.

Belay Device Performance Requirements


NFPA 1983 does not have a specific category for belay devices. Depending on how the device functions, it is tested to either the Rope Grab Standard or to the Descent Control Device standard.

Light-Use
Rope grab devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) Descent control devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) and have a 3 MBS of not less than 13.5 kN (3,034 lbf.) If the belay device has a passive breaking feature, the device shall not slip more than 25 mm at a force of 1.35 kN (300 lbf.)

General-Use
Rope grab devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 11 kN (2,500 lbf.) Descent control devices must not show any permanent damage to the device or to the rope at 5 kN (1,124 lbf.) and have a 3 MBS of not less than 22 kN (4,946 lbf.) If the belay device has a passive breaking feature, the device shall not slip more than 25 mm at a force of 2.7 kN (600 lbf.)

NFPA 1983 (2006) Pulley Performance Requirements


Light-Use
Minimum 3 sigma breaking strength (3 MBS) of not less than 22 kN (4,946 lbf.) 3 MBS of a becket of not less than 12 kN (2,698 lbf.)

General-Use
Minimum 3 sigma breaking strength (3 MBS) of not less than 36 kN (8,093 lbf.) 3 MBS of a becket of not less than 19.5 kN (4,383 lbf.)

About CMC Carabiners | HARDWARE

Choosing the Right Size Carabiner

Oval
The CMC ProTech Oval and BiWire Oval are small utility carabiners great for attaching hardware to your harness. CMC uses the ovals to finish off the Load Release Strap and/or to guide the rope into a pulley while tending a Prusik.

ProTech
CMC ProTech carabiners are the perfect size to attach descenders, ascenders or safety lines to your harness. Lightweight and strong, ProTech locking carabiners are also a good choice for technical rescue systems where the weight of your equipment is a factor.

ProSeries and CMC Steel


CMC ProSeries Aluminum carabiners and CMC Rescue Steel carabiners are our big carabiners designed for rope rescue systems. The wide gate openings fit easily over most stretcher rails and anchor points. The ProSeries aluminum carabiners meet the General Use performance requirements of NFPA 1983 at half the weight of steel carabiners.

ProSeries XL
Designed as a replacement for the heavy, steel ladder hooks, CMC ProSeries XL carabiners are also useful if you frequently encounter large diameter anchor points.

Unique Features of CMC Rescue Carabiners


CMC Manual-Lock Gate Design
CMC Manual-Lock carabiners stay unlocked until put into service. Then a quick 1/4 turn locks the gate. Unlike an auto-lock carabiner, the Manual-Lock does not need to be unlocked to remove it from your gear rack or loop. Unlike a screw-lock carabiner, there is no nut that can vibrate open or tighter. This makes the Manual-Lock an excellent choice for helicopter operations or other high vibration environments. The gate can be opened or closed with one hand.

CMC Key-Lock Carabiners


CMC ProSeries and ProTech carabiners now use an advanced new key-lock design. The key-lock does not have a notch that can hang up when you are removing the carabiner from a harness or web loops. The CMC KeyLock Carabiners proprietary (patent pending) design gives it exceptional strength in all directions. That strength is above what you would find on conventional key-lock design gates, and even most above the strength of most pin and notch designs.

CMC Visual Safety Indicators


A skull & crossbones warning symbol (b) provides visual indication that the gate is not locked on the Manual-Lock and the Screw-Lock carabiners. For added convenience and safety, a lock & arrow indicates which way to turn the sleeve to lock the gate on these carabiners. While a carabiner should always be physically checked to confirm it is locked, the visual indicators provide an additional level of safety.

CMC ProTech BiWire Carabiners
Wire gate carabiners became popular in the climbing world because of their light weight and high strength. The BiWire adds a totally new dimension to the concept by creating what is effectively a locking wire-gate carabiner. Two distinct and opposite actions are required to open the gate. This patent-pending design features an outer gate which protects the inner gate and prevents rope or hardware from opening it. Neither pressure from the outside or the inside of the carabiner can cause the gate to open. This makes the BiWire a safer alternative to a non-locking carabiner. The BiWire design is inherently strong and the gate is very resistant to dirt and ice. Even though the wires look thin, the BiWire minor axis strength is comparable to a conventional gate carabiner. Interior Length: 3.5 in. (88 mm) Note: The BiWire should not be used to replace a conventional locking gate carabiner because the gate is not physically secured by a sleeve. It could be possible for something to push open the inner gate allowing the possibility of the carabiner coming unclipped. So, use the BiWire as an alternative to a non-locker when you want extra strength and security.

new! CMC ProTech Oval Carabiners


The ProTech Oval is CMCs non-locking carabiner and the unique features include the key-lock design for snag-free operation and a side-swing gate for maximum gate opening. The oval design places equal amounts of force on the spine and gate allowing the carabiner to maintain full rated strength regardless of the width of the web or rope clipped into it. The ProTech Oval is a good size to clip over the ropes coming out of a pulley to help push a Prusik Hitch. Non-locking carabiners provide a variety of utility functions such as racking equipment or as the "keeper" carabiner on a load-release strap or Mariners knot. They are also used in critical climbing or rescue applications where a stuck gate must be avoided, but always used as pairs, rigged opposite and opposed.

The CMC ProSeries Hi-Line Carriage incorporates significant improvements that make it the most functional and versatile highline carriage, knot-passing pulley, and high strength tie-off available. For highlines, the rigging holes allow for excellent separation of Sealed ball taglines and hoist ropes for reevbearings for ing variations. For English and high efficiency Norwegian Reeves, this results in a greater spread between the hoist pulleys, thereby significantly reducing the chance of inadvertent spinning of the load below. The separate rigging holes make rigging easier and also prevent the issue of carabiners binding against each other. Additionally, the anodized aluminum sheave is fitted with sealed ball bearings for high efficiency. When a high-strength tie-off is required, the Hi-Line Carriage incorporates the simple, strong and innovative, built-in Sheave Lock that completely eliminates the need for separate pins.

CMC Rescue 8
UL Classified to NFPA 1983 General Use & Light Use
The classic CMC Rescue 8 design has been refined for even better performance with the current selection of rescue rope. Over twenty years ago, descenders had to accommodate rescue rope sizes from 7/16 to 5/8 inch. Today 5/8 in. rope is no longer common and the smaller dimensions of the new design provide greater control. CMCs exotic proprietary finish on the aluminum model provides outstanding wear resistance. The nickel-chrome plated steel model excels in the exceptionally high wear situations such as helicopter operations or sandy, gritty environments. The extended carabiner hole provides room for multiple carabiners. Both models are machined from 1/2 in. plate.

SUPER FINISH ON CMCS ALUMINUM 8


Whether hard or soft, the surface anodizing on aluminum descenders eventually wears through. Working with a company that spe cializes in material coatings, we developed a finish for our Rescue 8 and Rappel 8 that outwears every descender weve used. Our test samples spent over 6 months in CMC Rescue School classes with multiple rappels in each class without showing any indication of the surface wearing through.

HARDWARE | Ascenders

Gibbs Ascenders
Gibbs Ascenders provide excellent performance under the most adverse conditions, gripping on even muddy and icy ropes. Used for years for ascending by cavers, Gibbs are also used by many rescue teams for ratchets in haul systems and in other rope grab applications where a mechanical ascender provides greater efficiency. The Sport models are intended for ascending rope and work well for pack hauling systems for climbers and cavers. The Rescue models have a heavier shell and larger diameter pin for greater strength when used in a litter hauling system. On all models, the bottom of the shell has been modified to provide a curved interface with the rope for greater strength. With the spring loaded models, the spring prevents the ascender from sliding down the rope when the cam is not loaded. All models fit rope from 7/16 to 1/2 in. (1112.5 mm). Note: the breaking strength applies to the unit. The actual Gibbs/rope performance will vary depending on the type, brand, and condition of the rope.

WHY DO I NEED A SWIVEL?


Swivels perform two functions that can help a rescue system run smoother, first by removing twist from the system, and second by allowing the pulley to align with the direction of pull. Cable based systems have been used successfully for over 40 years for car over the side rescues and they are frequently used in indus trial applications. A loaded cable unwinds and can put significant twist into the system, a particular nuisance if it wraps around the belay line. A swivel at the end of the cable eliminates this problem. When rigging a change of direction, especially highpoints over a confined space where a tripod could not be used, a swivel can help. The primary place during industrial type rescues is where the system is rigged from a lower level due to space limitations. A swivel at the bottom change of direction helps resolve the twisting action of the bottom anchor. If the system rope is dragging on the sideplate of a change of direc tion pulley, system efficiency is lost. While the pulley and carabiner connection appears loose, when loaded it tends to hold the two components more in alignment. Inserting a swivel at this point allows the pulley to move freely to align with the direction of the load on the rope.

CMC Rescue One-Inch Flat Webbing


We have been using our one-inch flat webbing in our rescue classes for several years and it has proven to be an excellent performer. While not all flat web will hold a knot securely, CMC Rescue Flat Webbing has been specifically selected for the suppleness necessary to allow knots to be set securely. Flat web also tends to be easier to untie after a heavy load than the much softer tubular web. While the flat web is bulkier than the tubular, it does provide a significantly higher strength. Available by the foot or spool. Note: Industry practice allows for up to three sections per spool. Made of Polyester fiber.

The Pick Off Rescue

new! CMC Pick Off Kit


The complete set-up to attach a stranded subject to your system for a lowering or rappel based pick off rescue. The Pick Off Strap can be attached to the Victim Harness with a carabiner and everything stored in the bag that comes attached to the harness. Kit includes: 1 CMC ProSeries Victim Harness* 1 CMC ProSeries Pick Off Strap 2 CMC ProTech Manual-Lock Carabiner, Slate* 2 5 ft. x 8 mm Prusik Cord, Red Item #500108 $262.90

Not all subjects are injured or require immobilization and transport in a stretcher, so a rappel based rescue can often be used. One common rap pel based rescue involves transferring the subject onto the rescuers descen der. This is usually referred to as a pick off. Hands on experience prac ticing and teaching this technique led to the development of the CMC ProSeries Pick Off Strap as a more efficient way of quickly securing a sub ject then transferring their weight. Todays CMC Rescue School classes teach team based skills, and the pick off rescue now employs a main line and a belay line. The Pick Off Strap continues to be used for quick attach ment to the subject, effecting the weight transfer, and then positioning the subject above the rescuer for best control. Similar product ideas that followed the Pick Off Strap included the CMC ProSeries Adjustable Stretcher Strap, which provided a more efficient tender tie in for low angle evacuations, and the CMC ProSeries Load Release Strap. The Load Release Strap is a compact, simple, easy to rig way to release the load on the ratchet of the main line or a loaded belay device. These are just a few of the original CMC designs that have been widely adopted by rescuers around the world.

CMC ProSeries Pick Off Strap


CMC created the Pick Off Strap so that a rescuer could quickly connect to the victim and then adjust the strap to the desired length. CMC Pick Off Strap works well for positioning the victim for a lowering or rappel-based pick off or for an assisted rappel. We added a loop to the end for a more positive grip when pulling to adjust. Our ProSeries blue web improves the long-term performance, especially where it threads through the buckle. D-Ring end is rated at 8,039 lbf. (36 kN). Depending on how the buckle is loaded, it will begin to slip between 3,500 to 4,500 lbf. (15-20 kN). Tying off the buckle will increase the strength. This Pick Off Strap with Web Keeper allows the strap to be carried on a gear sling or harness without tangling or getting caught. Color: Blue. Length when fully extended: 42 in. (107 cm) Weight: 13 oz. (368 g) Item #201106 $37.00

CMC ProSeries Adjustable Stretcher Strap


Tying in at the right distance from the litter is the key to comfort and efficiency. Thats why we developed the Adjustable Stretcher Strap. Minor adjustments can be made while the litter is moving. Quickly releasing the buckle extends the strap rather than dragging the rescuer down with the litter. Sewn loop strength exceeds 8,039 lbf. (36 kN). Buckle performs the same as the Pick Off Strap described above. Length when fully extended: 30 in. (76 cm) Color: Blue. Weight: 9 oz. (255 g) Item #201102 $33.00

ROPES & ACCESSORIES | User Guide

Recommended Ropes for Specific Applications


Rescue Lifeline
By far the predominate rope in rescue operations is 1/2-inch, static kernmantle rope. The core (kern) and sheath (mantle) construction provides excellent handling and durability. Rescue units that transport rope long distances often select a smaller diameter, such as 7/16-inch. While all nylon construction has been the standard for years, lower stretch all-polyester ropes are gaining popularity.

Climbing Rope
When climbing above your belayer or if you anticipate a fall factor greater than .25, you need a dynamic rope such as those used by rock climbers. These ropes of nylon fiber and kernmantle construction are designed for excellent handling and maximum energy absorption.

Rope Access Work


Most rope access work such as window washing, building and dam inspection, and other work on rappel uses 7/16-inch kernmantle ropes. This size works well with a variety of hardware on the market, particularly the more sophisticated descenders such as the Petzl ID.

Water Rescue Throwline


Throwlines are designed to float so they are easier to see and reach. The new NFPA 1983 standard for water rescue throwlines states they should be between 7 mm and 9.5 mm and have a minimum strength of 13kN (2923 lbf.) Polypropylene is the most common fiber for floating ropes and the higher strength models add high tenacity polypropylene fibers such as Spectra.

Escape Line
Since Escape Lines spend most of their time being carried, they should be light in weight and compact enough to stay out of the way when working a fire. All certified escape lines provide sufficient strength for the bailout rappel. The difference is their resistance to the heat of the fire ground environment. While the nylon and polyester fiber ropes meet the NFPA requirement for heat resistance, some ropes add aramid fibers to provide an added level of resistance.

Prusik Cord
A Prusik Cord is a climbing accessory cord used to tie a Prusik Hitch around the rescue rope. A good Prusik Cord has just the right stiffness to reliably grab the rescue rope with the cord. A cord that is too stiff will not grab automatically when needed. Soft cords grab too easily, making them hard to manage, and tend to wear out quickly.

Ladder Halyard
A halyard for a fire service ladder must be easy to grip with gloves and, because ladders are stored on the exterior of the trucks, excellent resistance to sun and rain is necessary. Single or double braid ropes work well in pulleys and can be spliced for clean end terminations. CMC Rescue Ladderline is a double-braid construction using polyester fiber for resistance to sun and moisture.

RIT Line
In many areas it has become a standard practice to deploy a small cord behind the firefighter when entering an area where low visibility and the floor plan increases the chance of becoming lost. Called RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) Lines or Guide Lines, these ropes let the RIT team retrace your path and find you. Aramid fibers are the preference for their resistance to flame and high temperatures.

Impact Forces, Elongation, and Life Safety Rope


The elongation of a life safety rope relates directly to the forces encountered when a load is placed on the rope, either by lifting a stretcher or when arresting a fall. The important question is how much elongation is right for any particular application. A few years ago it was a simple choice. Sport climbing ropes had too much stretch, and static kernmantle caving ropes had enough stretch to provide some energy absorption, but not enough to make them inefficient in systems. So we used the caving ropes, but today there are a lot more choices in rope materials and performance. In 1998, the Cordage Institute published standard (CI-1801) that defined a static rope as having 1% to 6% elongation at 10% of the ropes minimum breaking strength. A low-stretch rope would have 6% to 10% elongation at the ropes minimum breaking strength. NFPA Standard 1983 on Life Safety Rope sets the standard for elongation between 1% and 10% at a load equal to 10% of the ropes minimum breaking strength. Elongation is really just another way of describing how much a rope will stretch when it is loaded. When the rope is used as a belay line, this stretching, or elongation, reduces the impact force. The greater the elongation, the less force felt by the system. A good example would be a bungee jumper taking a tremendous fall (jump) and stopping very comfortably. The critical factor, of course, is having enough clear, unobstructed space below. It might seem that rope with high elongation would be appropriate as a belay line. After all, a belay line catching a fall is a dynamic event, and the impact forces throughout the system are greater than the static load. A high elongation rope would absorb energy and minimize the impact. But, as described above, this requires a safe distance in which to stop. Unfortunately in a rescue, there are too many ledges, edges, and other hard things that could be more damaging to the rescuer and patient than the impact force of being quickly stopped by the belay rope. While advantageous for a belay, a rope with high elongation has disadvantages when used with a rappel or stretcher system. When a rescuer on rappel or tending a stretcher transfers his weight to the rope, the rope stretches. This means there is more rope between the anchor and the rescuer, causing an uncontrolled downward movement and introducing the risk of the rescuer hitting a ledge or the ground. With high elongation rope in a raising system, the haul team has to pull the stretch out of the rope before moving the load, thus reducing the teams efficiency. For these operations, an ideal rope would have minimum elongation.

Determining How Much Elongation is Right for You


Here is how we suggest you decide how much elongation in a rope is right for you. First, determine a maximum acceptable impact force that your system should be able to tolerate without causing harm to the people or failure of the system. The value that has been suggested by many, and is being considered for several standards, is 15 kN. This number was proposed many years ago by the British Columbia Council on Technical Rescue for their Belay Competence Drop Test (BCCTR). This was based on a typical rescue load of a patient, stretcher, tender and gear. Next, determine the maximum desired stopping distance for your belay system. This requires looking at both the elongation in the rope and the type of belay device being used. The BCCTR test recommends a maximum stopping distance of 1 meter. Your situation might allow a longer distance or may even require a shorter distance. When you have determined your requirements for impact force and stopping distance, test your belay system to see if it meets your needs. View the system as a whole, including rope, belay device, operator, and anticipated loads. Different belay systems can impart different impact forces on the system and should be tested as a unit. ASTM F2436-05 Standard Test Method for Measuring the Performance of Synthetic Rope Rescue Belay Systems and Equipment provides a test method for comparing one system to another. The best belay system will be one that arrests a fall in the shortest distance and stays below the maximum acceptable force on the systems components.

Today, the fiber technology does not exist to make a 7/16 in General Use life safety rope, but the committee wanted to keep the door open for such a light weight, high strength rope. Also new in the 2006 edition is the requirement that the label provide the user with information on the elongation at specified working loads. This will greatly help the user determine which product best meets their requirements. Elongation at 1.35 kN (300 lbf.) Elongation at 2.7 kN (600 lbf.) Elongation at 4.4 kN (1,000 lbf.)

ROPES & ACCESSORIES | New England Rope

New England Ropes is one of the countrys foremost manufacturers of climbing, safety, and rescue ropes. They offer a family of distinctive braided ropes that meet the rigorous demands of mountaineering and rescue operations.

new england KM III specs


The following specifications apply to all diameters of New England KM III: Certification UL Classified to current NFPA standards. CE approved to EN 1891. Construction Block creel, static kern mantle construction. Fiber The core is 100% nylon and the sheath is 100% polyester. Sheath Braided polyester jacket, 32 carrier, two over two under construction with half of the strands having a Z twist and half having a S twist.

New England KM III Static Kernmantle Rescue Rope


UL Classified to NFPA 1983
A superior handling rescue rope, New England Ropes KM III static kernmantle rope features a composite construction of nylon and polyester fibers. KM III has a weight-balanced construction with the sheath and the core each representing 50% of the total weight. The rope is torque-balanced to eliminate any spin during a rappel. The continuous filament polyester sheath is braided over a continuous nylon fiber core. This provides excellent handling and knot-holding characteristics, as well as rugged protection from abrasion and cutting. The polyester sheath provides added protection for ultraviolet light and from chemicals that are harmful to nylon. The polyester sheath also reduces the strength loss and weight gain that occurs when nylon absorbs water.

CMC Rescue Prusik Cord and Load Release Hitch Cord


The most important attributes of a cord used for Prusik Hitches is consistency in handling and diameter. Once you have determined the Prusik Hitch that works best on your host rope, you want the same performance every time you replace it. CMC Rescue Prusik Cord has the right balance of suppleness for reliable activation, but is not so soft that it wears out rapidly. Made of nylon with a torque-free, kernmantle construction, it comes in solid colors to help discriminate between cords designed for Prusik Hitches and climbers accessory cords. Two color choices in the 7 mm and 8 mm diameters allow you to use a separate color for each length Prusik in a Tandem Prusik Belay System. The 9 mm diameter is the size preferred by rescuers that use a load releasing hitch. Available by the foot or spool.

An Important Note On Prusiks


The performance parameters of Prusik Hitches used to belay rescue systems have received only limited investigation through reproducible testing. Several questions remain open such as the effects of wear, age, and other environmental influences. If you decide to rely on a Prusik Hitch based system, it is your responsibili ty to determine that the particular combi nation of Prusik Hitch material (Prusik or accessory cord) and the host rope will work reliably for your systems, level of training, and rescue conditions.

CMC Rescue Ladderline


NFPA 1931 specifies a MBS of 825 lbs. for halyards Manufactured by New England Ropes
Ladderline was designed as an optimal halyard for fire service extension ladders. The special spun polyester sheath provides smoother handling and an excellent grip, with or without gloves, wet or dry. Ladderline is constructed of 100% polyester fiber for minimum stretch and sag caused by changing environmental conditions. The polyester fiber will not rot or mildew, providing longer service life. With a double-braid construction, Ladderline can be spliced. CMC recommends using a Halyard Clamp for easy installation. Color: White with a red tracer.

Halyard Clamp
Ladderline can be spliced to make a strong, neat connection to the anchor point on the ladder, but it can be an involved process. The brass Halyard Clamp is quick and easy to install, requiring only a mallet to fold the prongs over on the doubled rope. Our testing on 1/2-inch Ladderline indicates the clamp slips at 800 lbs. While not as strong as a knot or well made splice, it is sufficiently strong for most customers requirements. Fits 1/2 and 3/8-inch Ladderline.

CMC Rescue Rope & Equipment Bags


An original CMC Rescue design, these Rope & Equipment Bags keep your rope rescue kit together, ready to go. They are made of tough CORDURA nylon. The padded backpack-type shoulder straps make a fully loaded bag easier to carry. Your hardware stays together so that it can be pulled out of the pocket before you deploy the Rope & Molded Equipment Bag as you would an ordinary rope bag. Additional pockets on the X-Large Shoulder Straps bag are a good place to carry more web, edge protectors, harnesses, or anchor straps. CMC Rescue Rope & Equipment Bags have proven themselves in the field and are now the standard pack on many fire department trucks and engines. Pockets have fast-acting, side-release buckles. Use the included Multi-Loop Strap to connect your hardware together, then use a carabiner (not included) to attach the strap to the loop inside the center pocket. Pocket dimensions: 6 x 20 in.

ABOUT HELMET STICKERS


It has become a common practice for hard hat users to apply self adhesive stickers to personalize their hard hats or for other marking or identification purposes. Considering the type of adhesive used in typical pressure sensitive stickers, there is very little potential for chemical interaction between the adhesive and the helmet shell. As a result, the use of stickers would not be expected to negatively affect the performance of the helmet under normal conditions.

PRINCETON TEC TECHNOLOGY MAXBRIGHT REBEL LEDS


Princeton Tec is converting their headlamp line to the revolutionary new Rebel LED technology that offers twice the brightness, twice the efficien cy, and a longer shelf life compared to standard high watt LEDs on the market. As a result, todays Princeton Tec headlamps offer significantly increased performance.

new!
Princeton Tec EOS II Intrinsically Safe Headlamp
By Princeton Tec UL Class I, Div. 1, Groups A, B, C, D*
Because of its intrinsically safe rating, high performance and compact size, CMC has selected the Princeton Tec EOS II as the headlamp for our confined space entry kits. The Class I, Division 1 rating makes the EOS II the safest choice when working in hazardous environments. The single Maxbright Rebel LED puts out an incredible 50 lumens and has a running burn time of up to 60 hours. The EOS II comes with a rubber head band that really sticks to an industrial hard hat or a river rescue helmet. Waterproof to one meter, the EOS II is an excellent choice when swimming rivers or working in other environments. Also comes with the standard elastic strap and VELCRO mounting patch. Three AAA Alkaline batteries included. Item #130625 *When used with 3 alkaline batteries. $59.00

REGULATED LED/ CONSTANT BRIGHTNESS


Princeton Tec lights that feature regulated LEDs have a sophisticated regulating circuit that maintains initial brightness as long as the batteries have sufficient voltage. Traditional lights are very bright initially, but immediately begin to dim and contin ue to dim until the batteries are drained. Constant Brightness is a term used to describe products that have regulated LEDs.

Princeton Tec Quad


Weighing less than four ounces, the Quad is a lightweight, compact, water-resistant headlamp. The 4-ultrabright LED array provides sufficient light for trail walking and close at hand tasks such as patient care, map reading, and system rigging. Its small size makes it a great back-up lamp or for when you didnt plan to get caught by the dark. Multiple light levels provide the right amount of brightness for the task. The regulated LEDs maintain constant brightness and the power meter provides continuous feedback on the condition of the batteries. Runs on 3-AAAs alkaline which are included. Item #130915 $33.00

XENON INCANDESCENT BULB


Xenon bulbs use a special type of halogen gas. Xenon bulbs come closest to replicating the color temper ature of daytime light. They also generate about twice the brightness and consume about half the power of traditional halogen bulbs.

Tactical Headlamps

new!
Princeton Tec Torrent
UL Class I, Groups A, B, C and D, Division 2 (LED model)*
CMC offers the Torrent flashlight in two models: a super-bright Xenon incandescent light to cut through smoke and haze when searching a building or route finding at night and a long lasting LED model that can be used in hazardous locations. The Torrent combines a focused narrow and a focused wide beam to allow for the most versatility. At close range, the wide beam simulates normal daylight conditions so you can take advantage of your peripheral vision. The narrow beam creates a long-throw spotlight ideal for night hiking and search & rescue. The locking switch, which is easy to use even with gloves on, prevents the light from being turned on by accident. O-ring seals on the lens cap and switch prevent water leakage whether dropped in the river or blasted by a fire hose. Eight AA Alkaline batteries included. Item #132307 Item #132312 Xenon bulb LED bulb Yellow body Blue body $45.00 $59.00

QUAD AND LITHIUM BATTERIES


Weight conscious users will love the Quad's sophisticated circuitry that allows the optional use of lithium AAA batteries. They reduce the Quad's weight to 82 grams, perform in extremely cold temperatures, and significantly increase regulated burn times on all modes.

*LED model when used with Duracell or Energizer alkaline batteries.

Princeton Tec Yukon HL


UL Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D; Class II, Div 2, Groups F & G*
The recreation market is saturated with a wide variety of headlamps and we have tried many of them on night searches and rescues.

CMC ProTech Rescue Stretcher


The CMC ProTech Stretchers are light-duty, disaster response stretchers designed for durability and versatility. The unique feature of the ProTech Stretchers is the tubular runner rails that run the full length of the stretcher along the bottom. These provide a very strong and durable base, making it far more difficult to damage from regular use, as compared to other baskets that simply use a flat bar. This product represents a very cost-effective alternative to the more heavy-duty stainless steel models, and will meet the needs of many users who only use stretchers occasionally, or who are on very limited budgets for rescue equipment. All models are 7-1/4 in. (18 cm) deep. Durathene netting. Powder coated steel. Load Rating: 900 lbf. (4 kN). Color: Black.

Traverse Advantage Plastic Stretcher


The Traverse Advantage Plastic Stretcher combines a fully internal stainless steel frame with a high-density, polyethylene plastic shell that protects the patient and provides a smooth bottom surface for sliding the stretcher. The frame provides a 2,500 lb. strength rating and fully supports the patient. In addition, the shell attaches to the top rail frame, leaving the second railing for tying in the patient. The shell has generous cutouts for carrying the Str atLoad attachment stretcher and the 7/8-inch diameter top rail is more comfortable on the hands. A closed-cell foam patient pad prevents absorption of fluids and is resistant to the harshest cleaning agents. For high-angle evacuations, the Advantage has the patented StratLoad Attachment Points for clipping in carabiners inside the frame rails. Dimensions: 85 x 23.5 x 7.5 in.

Litter Shields | LITTERS & ACCESSORIES

CMC Rescue Litter Shield Plus


Taller and with a Universal Mounting Bracket
Protect your patient from further trauma during stretcher evacuations and carryouts. A patient in a stretcher has a very limited ability to protect their face, head, and neck. Since its inception, the CMC Rescue Litter Shield has made several saves by deflecting falling rocks away from patients heads. The shield provides protection from falling rocks and debris, inclement weather, and brush without compromising access to and visibility of the patients head. The Litter Shield Plus is taller to provide more room for a patient on a backboard or litter insert, and to help reduce the closed-in feeling experienced by some patients. The mounting bracket eliminates the need for a railing clamp on the stretcher and allows the shield to fit most stretchers. Molded of thick Lexan, the Litter Shield offers impact resistance with the clarity and weather-ability of glass. Patient comfort is increased due to the reduced need for other head and face protective equipment. Patented. Weight: 6 lbs. (2.7 kg) Item #740005 Item #740001 Litter Shield Plus for CMC ProSeries and Traverse Titan Stretchers Litter Shield Plus for CMC ProTech and Junkin Stretchers $329.00 $329.00

CMC Rescue Original Litter Shield


Our Original Litter Shield attaches to a mount on the stretcher rail that allows the shield to pivot and nest inside the stretcher. A quick release pin allows the shield to be completely removed if necessary. The lower profile makes storage easier, but does not provide as much clearance for the patients face as the Litter Shield Plus shown above. Patented. Weight: 6 lbs. (2.7 kg) Each shield requires a railing clamp that must be ordered separately.

new! Emegear NeXsplint Cervical Splint


Immobilizes in position of comfort Greater degree of immobilization Fits a broader range of patient sizes and types Custom fit during application

Not just a C-collar requiring continuous support by the medic, the NeXsplint is a full cervical splint, acting as a force multiplier allowing cervical stabilization in difficult to work locations or when access to the patient is limited. The NeXsplint fits a broad range of patient sizes and types, eliminating the need for carrying multiple collars to make sure you have the right size. Because the NeXsplint can be custom fit during application, a minimum amount of patient movement is needed before the cervical spine is protected. These features make the NeXsplint the ideal choice for confined space rescue and wilderness rescue where patient access is difficult or personnel to help are not available. The compact model of the NeXsplint easily fits in most packs and comes vacuum sealed in a protective bag. Size folded: 14 1/2 x 8 1/2 in. (37 x 22 cm) Weight: 8 oz.

We have used the Miller Board for years in our confined space classes and on rescues. Hook and loop straps allow rapid immobilization of a patient, yet are so secure and compact that the patient can easily be tipped and rolled to fit through tight or confined spaces or, if necessary, used for a vertical lift. Often we will use the Miller Board to extricate the patient, and then tie the board into a litter for the evacuation.

CMC Rescue Vertical-Lift Stretcher Harness


Confined spaces and narrow openings require the stretcher to be rigged with the patient held vertically in order to fit, and these openings usually end with a 90-degree transition. The Vertical-Lift Harness eases the transition over an edge when a high anchor point is not available, such as a parapet roof, out a window, off a tank top, or over a handrail. This reduces the manpower requirements, improves patient care and reduces risk. The unique spreader bar allows the stretcher to pivot between the side straps as the head of the stretcher clears the edge. Constructed of 6,000 lbf., one-inch flat web for high strength and lightweight. Buckles allow easy adjustment. Delta Quick Link included. Weight: 2 lbs., 15 oz. (1.3 kg) Item # 724133 $165.00

CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System


For many years the accepted method for securing a patient in a stretcher was improvised internal and external lashings using oneinch tubular web. Not everyone remembers how to do it and often the finished lashing was either too tight or too loose. Looking for a quicker and more secure way, the CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System was developed after testing a variety of prototypes during CMC Rescue School classes. The refined product is lighter weight, quick, secure, and can be easily adjusted to meet the patients Pelvic Harness requirements for comfort. The pelvic harness part of the system supports the patients weight when the stretcher is placed in a head up position. The internal lashings are available for a one-piece or twopiece stretcher. They can be used with the pelvic harness system or for a patient on a backboard. Color-coded web helps keep the system organized.

arizona vortex
Development of the Rock Exotica Arizona Vortex
The Arizona Vortex was developed in the desert mountains of northern Arizona. Its design was based on expertise gained while working with wooden timber frame artificial high directionals constructed for vertical rescue work. Initial development work was done during Ropes That Rescue (RTR) Seminars under the direction of Reed Thorne. The first metal prototype of the Arizona Vortex was an easel-style A-Frame welded together from steel square tubing and plate. Although heavy and cumbersome, it provided a test bed for proving and refining the design. The next step was the construction of an aluminum prototype. It was tested in four one-week-long RTR rigging seminars before the next prototype was made. It refined the legs adjusting system and introduced the Raptor foot design (named for its claw-like appearance). The shape of the foot helps direct forces downward into the soft soil often found in mines and wilderness locations. Three more years of use in rescue, rigging seminars, and rope access worldwide allowed Reed Thorne to further refine the design. With the help and exquisite craftsmanship of Rock Thompson of ROCK EXOTICA, and input from other users, the next generation of the Arizona Vortex took shape. It is incredibly versatile and can be rigged as a tripod, a bipod, or monopod.

Arizona Vortex Features


Lighter, smaller head unit is milled from a solid block of high-strength aluminum Two-piece Head Set can be used as a tripod, bipod, or monopod (Gin Pole) Two independent artificial high directionals can be made from one unit Lighter, shorter legs (without any loss of tripod height) are easier to transport Ideal for rope access workmuch more than just a rescue tripod

advanced skills, training and safety


While tripods are inherently stable under most conditions, A Frames (bipods) and Gin Poles (monopods) are not. Improper rigging will put subjects and rescuers at risk. A knowledge of advanced rigging and complex guying systems is essential to safely set up A Frames and Gin Poles. As with all rescue techniques, and partic ularly where advanced skills are involved, CMC urges professional level training. Training specific to the use of the AZ Vortex is available from CMC Rescue School and Ropes That Rescue, Ltd. CMC Rescue School: Custom courses taught at your location. Contact us at www.cmcrescue.com or call 800 235 5741 for specific course information. Ropes That Rescue Ltd: Courses taught in Northern Arizona or at your location. Contact Ropes That Rescue Ltd. at www.ropesthatrescue.com for more information. Seattle Fire Ladder 7 practices tandem monopod and bipod set-up using a single Arizona Vortex for confined space extraction and removal via a tracking line to the ground.

Arizona Vortex Configurations


The flexibility of the Arizona Vortex allows for three different configurations to meet the requirements of a specific rescue. Tripod The most stable configuration. The articulating third leg allows the head to be moved closer to an edge than in a conventional tripod. Bipod Has good stability in one direction, but must be securely guyed. It can be positioned square or sideways to the direction of the load. Gin Pole The least stable configuration and needs to be securely guyed. May be the only choice when there is not room for more than one leg.
Tripod

Key Benefits:
Color Coding Top and bottom sections of the legs are colored differently to aid in assembly. The two parts of the head come in different colors for quick identification. Telescoping Legs The top legs telescope inside the lower legs and slide through the head to allow adjustment of both the overall height or the height of a single leg. Pulley Mount A pulley can be mounted directly into the head, eliminating the height lost when a carabiner is used as a connector. Head Set Pulley Wheel The Arizona Vortex includes a Head Set Pulley Wheel that mounts into the head set with a pin. This allows maximum height adjustment and eliminates the need for additional hardware.

Rock Exotica Arizona Vortex


Reflecting the experience of the many users during Ropes That Rescue Ltd. workshops, and CMC Rescue School classes, the next generation of the AZ Vortex provides even more perfomance-enhancing features. The two-piece head can be rigged as a standard tripod, or in advanced applications as an AFrame, a sideways A-Frame, or a Gin Pole. The easel leg allows the tripod to be leaned to form an easel A-Frame with adjustable leg lengths. With the versatile third leg, the AZ Vortex lets rescuers set up an artificial high directional in virtually any urban, industrial, or wilderness location. The lighter Head Set and the lighter, more compact legs make the Vortex easier to transport. On A-Frame and easel A-Frame applications, at least two pulleys can now be attached directly into the Head Set without carabiners, eliminating lost headspace and working clearance. This double pulley feature makes the Vortex ideal for use with highlines and tracking line offsets. The extra attachment points also work well for rope access where several lines may be needed over the edge. Two different types of Vortex feet provide a secure footing on varying terrain.

CMC GEAR GUIDE

Confined Space, Industrial & Rope Access Gear Guide


rope Access Technician
The Rope Access Technicians equipment allows movement up and down the rope and provides the attachment to the safety line. The gear needs to be light, dependable, and multifunctional as the technician carries all his access gear plus his working tools. CMC recommends the following equipment for Rope Access Technicians.
Quick Link, Rectangular for use as an attachment point from your harness to an ascender (see page 116). CMC ProTech Riggers Harness is a lightweight certified harness with multiple attachment points and side positioning rings (see page 19).

Petzl Vertex Vent Helmet is popular due to its light weight, comfort and great ventilation (see page 71).

EOS II Headlamp with its intrinsically safe rating is the safest and brightest for working in hazardous environments (see page 74).

Petzl Croll is a chest-mounted ascender providing an efficient method of ascending a fixed line (see page 116).

CMC ProTech Manual-Lock Carabiners stay unlocked until put into service. Then a 1/4 turn locks the gate for a secure one-handed operation (see page 30).

CMC Rescue Rappel Gloves have the extra protection needed when working in industrial environments without sacrificing the dexterity (see page 69).

Petzl ASAP and lanyard is a mobile fall arrester that will follow up or down your safety line as you climb and descend (see page 117).

Petzl Handled Ascender can be used for self-belaying or as a handled ascender on a fixed rope (see page 40).

confined space rescuer

Confined space rescue equipment needs to be durable and flexible. Tight spaces require equipment that can withstand crawling and dragging, and may be exposed to environmental hazards. The following personal equipment is recommended by CMC as the best option for confined space operations.

Petzl Vertex Vent Helmet Helmet is popular due to its light weight and lowprofile (see page 71).

CMC Rescue Rappel Gloves have the extra protection needed when working in confined spaces environments without sacrificing dexterity (see page 69). ESS Goggles provide excellent eye protection and minimize fogging (see page 70).

CMC ProSeries Confined Space Harness provides multiple attachment points for assisting the rescuer in a confined space environment (see page 21).

EOS II Headlamp with its Class 1, Division 1 intrinsically safe rating is the safest and brightest for working in hazardous environments (see page 74).

CMC ProTech Manual-Lock Carabiners stay unlocked until put into service. Then a 1/4 turn locks the gate for a secure one-handed operation (see page 30).

Industrial rescue

Equipment for rescue in an industrial setting frequently has the same requirements as a confined space environment. It should be durable as well as strong and offer the flexibility to be worn for prolonged periods of time. CMC recommends the following personal equipment as the best option for rescuers involved in industrial access or rescue operations.

Petzl Vertex Vent Helmet is popular due to its light eight and comfort (see page 71).

CMC Rescue 8 offers exceptionally high wear performance for rescue rope sizes from 7/16 to 5/8 inch (see page 39).

CMC Rescue Pulley is a lightweight, full-strength, Prusik minding pulley providing high efficiency and a low profile (see page 34). CMC/Roco Universal One Piece Harness is light weight and includes side positioning D-Rings for industrial applications (see page 23).

EOS II Headlamp with its intrinsically safe rating is the safest and brightest for working in hazardous environments (see page 74).

CMC ProTech Manual-Lock Carabiners Carabiners stay unlocked until put into service. Then a 1/4 turn locks the gate for a secure one-handed operation (see page 30).

CMC Rescue Pro Pocket is a handy pouch to store accessory equipment on your harness belt (see page 26).

ESS Goggles provide excellent eye protection and minimize fogging (see page 70).

CMC Rescue Rappel Gloves have the extra protection needed when working in confined spaces environments without sacrificing dexterity (see page 69).

8 mm Prusik Loop for use in a Tandem Prusik Belay System (see page 55).

CONFINED SPACE | SKED stretchers

HMD SKED Stretcher

The Mass CasualtyHaz-Mat Decontaminable (HMD) SKED is a variation of the classic SKED Stretcher design and is intended for ease of use in mass casualty or hazardous material incidents. Mass Casualty Incidents: The HMD SKED can be stored flat on pallets with the straps packaged separately. This allows quick movement of a large number of stretchers to an incident with a large number of patients, such as a plane crash or explosion. Pallets of 50 to 200 HMD stretchers can be moved by truck or airlifted by helicopter. Efficient tactics facilitate the rapid movement of patients. Haz-Mat Incidents: Doing anything in Level A and B protective suits is difficult. The HMD SKED allows a patient or a downed rescuer to be quickly rolled onto the stretcher and pulled out of the hot zone by rescuers a rope length away. Polypropylene straps are resistant to chemicals and the two-inch side release buckles are easy to operate even with thick gloves. Color: Yellow. Weight: 12 lbs., 6 oz. (5.6 kg) Item #752507 $317.20

HALF-SKED Patient Drag


Skedco developed the HALF-SKED for extricating patients from spaces too tight or restricted for other stretchers. We think the HALF-SKED is ideal for tactical teams that need to secure and rapidly extricate an injured person. The HALF-SKED allows rescuers to bend the patient at the hips in order to turn corners in caves or confined spaces. The HALF-SKED uses two-inch wide chest and leg straps with side-release buckles to package the patient quickly and securely, particularly valuable if the patient must be immediately evacuated from a high risk area. Weight: 6 lbs. (2.7 kg) Item #752008 HALF-SKED, Orange $173.90

SKED Stretcher Flotation System


The flotation system for the SKED Stretcher maintains the patient in a nearly vertical position. It is designed so that a patient in the water can be loaded into the stretcher. Self-righting, it will keep the patients head above water even in rough seas. Fits both the fullsize and pediatric SKED Stretchers. Item #756001 $331.00

SKED Stretcher System


Compact storage, ease of use, and flexibility in means of transport have made the SKED Stretcher popular with fire departments, rescue squads, the military, and ski patrols. Made from a heavy sheet of plastic, the stretcher becomes rigid when folded around your patient. A variety of handles and straps allows the stretcher to be transported by carrying, lifting (vertically or horizontally) by rope systems or helicopter, or towed with the stretcher sliding on the smooth bottom surface. System comes complete with the stretcher, CORDURA nylon backpack/towing harness, two straps, horizontal lift slings, vertical lift sling, one large steel carabiner, and four removable web handles. Storage bag is 36 inches (91 cm) long by 9 inches (23 cm) in diameter. System weight: 18 lbs.

improved! CMC Rescue Escape Artist


The Most Advanced Escape Descent Control Device Available UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Escape
The Escape Artist offers what most other escape devices do not a handsfree edge transition and a controllable descent. The Escape Artist pays out the rope smoothly and then locks when loaded, allowing both hands to be used to negotiate the exit. Squeezing the lever gives the user control of the descent rate. Intended for the most extreme conditions, the Escape Artists all-metal construction and minimum number of parts provides durability and reliable performance. The Escape Artist is intended to be pre-rigged on an escape line, and kept ready for immediate use. The improved handle is located inside the side plates, reducing the potential of catching on an edge. It also provides increased mechanical advantage for easier control, while maintaining all of the high-performance features of the original design. The Escape Artist features:

Patented auto-locking allows hands-free edge transitions Variable friction allows user to control rate of descent Works equally well with or without gloves of any type
Item #300913 Item #300915

Constructed of aluminum and stainless steel Compact and lightweight - only 6.5 oz. (184 g) Fits escape lines from 7.5 to 9.0 mm in diameter

new! CMC Rescue Double Brake Escape Artist


Squeeze Too Hard and the Descent Slows UL Classified to NFPA 1983 - Escape
Some users were concerned that in a panic situation, a firefighter might squeeze the handle of their descender and not be able to stop. The unique design of the Double Brake Escape Artist eliminates that concern. You release the handle to stop, but if you squeeze too hard, the Double Brake Escape Artist will slow or stop your descent. The Double Brake Escape Artist has all the other features of the original Escape Artist:

Patented auto-brake allows hands-free edge transitions Variable friction allows user to control rate of descent Works equally well with or without gloves of any type
Item #300923

Constructed of aluminum and stainless steel Compact and lightweight - only 6.5 oz. (184 g) Fits 8 mm escape lines only
$95.00

PICKING THE RIGHT ESCAPE ARTIST SINGLE BRAKE OR DOUBLE BRAKE?


The choice of a descent control device involves inherent trade offs based on what is most important to the user. The original single brake design of the Escape Artist provides a hands free edge transi tion and exceptional control on the descent. An important feature is the ease of paying out rope if the anchor point is some distance from the edge. Squeezing the handle fully allows the rope to slide smoothly through the device. The trade off is that during a descent the user must remember to release the handle to slow down. Squeezing the device in a panic grip will allow the user to continue to descend. The Double Brake Escape Artist operates in the same manner: the user squeezes the handle to control descent and releases the handle to stop. However, if the descent is too fast and the user panics, squeezing harder on the handle instead of letting up, the Double Brake Escape Artist will slow the descent. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only available escape certified descent control device with a double braking feature. The trade off is that when a user is letting out rope quickly to cross a room, some skill is required to find the free run ning spot between too little or too much pressure on the handle. The choice of which model Escape Artist will work best for your department and personnel depends on its level of training and the protocols that have been established for emergency escape.

Designed by a Firefighter to Save Firefighters
Why carry just an escape kit when the Firefighter Retrieval Kit has the tools to accomplish a horizontal or vertical evacuation of a downed firefighter as well as providing you with a means of escape? The equipment in this kit can be configured in a variety of ways to assist a downed firefighter even under dire circumstances. The single pulley allows the rescuer to build a 2:1 mechanical advantage for assistance in dragging an incapacitated firefighter across the floor, especially useful in a low-rise/wide-rise (big box store construction) building. By rigging the single and double pulleys and connecting to a high point, a 3:1 mechanical advantage can be built to raise a downed firefighter up and over a window sill or other obstruction and down to the ground or other area of safe haven. Use the Survivor 8 to lower yourself or another firefighter to safety. The tough CORDURA nylon storage bag attaches to an SCBA or a truck belt and has pockets for storing the hardware. Developed by firefighters and then field tested in real life applications. Weight: 3.2 lbs (1.5 g).

For many firefighters, the solution to navigation in an unknown structure with poor visibility is a small cord attached at the entrance and deployed as the firefighter moves through the building. Whether called a RIT line, guideline, or search line, the cord provides a means of retracing your steps to the entry point or for a Rapid Intervention Team to quickly locate you. With a carabiner on each end, your partners line can be attached to yours to extend the distance. The 50 ft. length works well for residences and small structures.

ISH Tactical Accessory Pack


The ISH Tactical Accessory Pack is a multi-purpose leg pack that provides quick accessibility while maintaining maximum mobility. Ish Antonio refined his design through years of use in military special operations under the most adverse conditions. While originally designed as a combat medical pack, it is useful for carrying any equipment that needs quick accessibility such as ordinance disposal tools or evidence collection. The front thigh-mount design provides easy access when kneeling. Velcro closed pockets and rattle-free zippers keep the contents in the pack whether the user is jumping, running, or swimming. Unique external VELCRO strap allows the pack to be closed in an instant if the user must quickly change his position. The Tactical Accessory Pack attaches to any duty belt or harness and keeps your primary medical gear immediately accessible. Color: Black. Dimensions: Small: 6.5 x 5 x 2.5 in.

The patented Integrated Stealth Harness (ISH) is a multi-mission tactical harness for law enforcement or military special operations designed by Ish Antonio. The ISH mounts underneath a utility/duty belt or a military 2-1/4 in. web belt, with the leg loops stored in a small pocket on the belt. Connecting the waist buckle on the ISH provides a load-bearing belt. For a full seat harness, pull the leg loops out of the pocket and wrap them around your legs. The design of the leg loops makes them easy to put on without any twisting of straps, even when working by feel in the dark. The belt is padded for increased comfort. The ISH harness can be used for rappels, belays, and tactical ascents. Weight: 1 lb., 13 oz. Color: Black.

The Integrated Stealth Harness (ISH) System


Ishmael L. Antonio retired from an elite rescue team known as the USAF Pararescue. During more than 20 years of service, Ish was credited with 30 lives saved. He is an experienced climber who has participated in two Mt. McKinley expeditions and has done Yosemite Valley big-wall ascents on El Capitan and Half Dome. His combat field experience includes Operation Task Force Ranger, Somalia, where he treated victims of a night mortar attack in Mogadishu and Operation Uphold Democracy in Haiti, where he was hand-picked as the primary Combat Search and Rescue Team leader. Ish recognized the need for a dependable tactical harness during a night helicopter FAST rope insertion when the fixed leg loops of a standard climbing harness he was wearing snagged on part of the helicopter, causing him to hang upside down beneath the belly of the flying helicopter. As a result of this incident and other recognized deficiencies in standard climbing harnesses, he worked with CMC Rescue to develop and patent the Integrated Stealth Harness (ISH) to accommodate the Special Operations requirements.

AIR RESCUE OPERATIONS


It is critical for air operations rescue equipment to be ergonomically designed so the operators focus can remain on the task at hand and not on operating the equipment. Harnesses must be easily donned and doffed, straps must be simple to use, and buckles easy to operate. The equipment also has to meet applicable performance standards as well as air-worthiness requirements. Whether intended for rappelling out of a helicopter or attaching a litter to the hoist cable, CMC air rescue products are designed and manufactured without compromise, and with the operator in mind.

Air operations rescue equipment must be ergonomically designed and secure. The following personal equipment is recommended for crew chief or hoist operator.

CMC Rescue Short Haul Lines


CMC has revolutionized the realm of short haul operations with the CMC Short Haul Line. Its synthetic fibers deliver an unbeatable strength to weight ratio. Unlike metallic cables, the Short Haul line is non-conductive and can be stuffed and stored in a rope bag without risk of kinking or otherwise damaging the rope. These characteristics, combined with low volume storage, a high visibility sheath, and extremely low stretch (less than 0.5% at 600 lbs); make the CMC Short Haul Line ideal for all types of short haul operations. The line comes complete with 1.5 inch diameter stainless steel thimbles spliced at both ends and is compliant with Department of Interior Standard 351 DM 1. Custom lengths are available by special order. Provision available for aircraft equipped with dual hook systems. Contact our sales department for additional details

WATER RESCUE | gear guide

Water Rescue Gear Guide


swiftwater technician
Water rescue operations include swiftwater, flood, surf, open ocean, and calm water rescues. The following personal equipment is recommended by CMC for water rescuers responding to a variety of environments.

Cascade Swiftwater Helmet is a superior quality helmet which provides a high level of protection, ergonomic fit and ample drains for ultimate comfort (see page 146).

Seal Swim Mask provides eye protection and high visibility with exceptional resistance to leaks while working in a swiftwater environment (see page 146).

EOS II Headlamp is intrinsically safe and waterproof to one meter for a bright light when working in hazardous water environments (see page 71).

CMC ProTech Manual-Lock Carabiners stay unlocked until put into service. Then a 1/4 turn locks the gate for a secure one-handed operation (see page 71).

US Divers AMPHIB Boots is an all terrain, multifunctional boot that offers optimal support and protection in and out of the water (see page 147).

McNett Saturna Knife is an excellent choice for versatile water rescue work with a secure sheath to attach to your FPD (see page 73).

NRS Utility Gloves have a tight, yet comfortable fit with synthetic palms for unmatched hand protection in the water (see page 146).

US Divers Shredder SAR Swim Fins are specifically designed for water rescue and SAR swimming that can be worn over water boots (see page 147).

Aqua Strobe is floatable and waterproof to 100 meters for reliable performance (see page 76).

THROWLINES: A SAFE CHOICE

CMC Rescue NFPA Throwline


UL Classified to NFPA 1983 Throwline
Designed to meet the NFPA 1983 specification for a floating water rescue throwline, the CMC Rescue NFPA Throwline is an excellent handling, 8 mm rope. Dyneema core, polyester sheath. The bright yellow color is highly visible. Available by the foot or 2,400 ft. spool. Weight: 2 lbs./100 ft. (29.8 g/m) Diameter: 8 mm. 3 MBS: 4,000 lbf. (17 kN) Item #293387 $.92/ft.

CMC Rescue SRT Throwline


The SRT Throwline was developed for swiftwater rescue technicians needing the versatility of a throwline with a larger diameter for a better grip. SRT Throwline is supple enough to fit into a compact throwbag, but has extra strength and is easy to grip when setting tension diagonals or boat lines. A combination of the polypropylene core and protective nylon sheath produces a strong, supple, highly visible river rescue rope. Available by the foot or 1,200 ft. spool. Weight: 3.9 lbs. per 100 ft. Dia: 3/8-in. (10 mm) MBS: 3,552 lbf. (15.8 kN). Item #292957 $.79/ft.

A throwline bag is the safest way to rescue a subject in fast moving or still water. It also provides a downstream safety backup when rescuers must enter the water. We recommend 50 foot lengths for rafts and boats. River rescue personnel should use 50 or 75 foot lengths, which is about as far as a bag can be thrown. The 100 foot length is good when throwing from a bridge or high bank. Throwbags should be kept in patrol cars, ambulances, and other emergency response vehicles.

CMC Rescue Redi-Line Throwline


This very cost effective, polypropylene line is an excellent choice for shore-based responders. The red/white stripe is highly visible. A hollow-braid construction makes the line easy to handle and stuff into throwbags. With lifesafety equipment this affordable, you can afford to have a throwline in every patrol car, municipal truck, or fire apparatus. Available by the foot or 1,500 ft. spool. Diameter: 7/16-in. (11 mm). Weight: 2.3 lbs./100 ft. MBS: 2,380 lbf. (10 kN). Item #292763 $.47/ft.

WATER RESCUE | ResQMax

ResQmax Streamline Systems


Rescue Solutions has engineered a major upgrade in the ResQmax Projectiles, making them easier to fill and more durable during use. The new filler hose assembly features a quick connect fitting for the projectile and the hose/air bottle connector. The hose/air bottle connector is available for SCBA, SCUBA, and DIN type fittings and connectors can be quickly changed with the quick connect fitting to the filler hose. The new nozzle assembly has a quick connect fitting that just snaps into the nozzle. The new nozzle protectors are glassfilled nylon and less likely to dent and easier to replace when needed. The systems opperate at 3,000 psi, which requires a high-pressure tank to fill the projectile.
The Streamline Projectiles may only be used with the Streamline filler hose assembly NOT with the original ResQmax assembly. For a conversion kit to upgrade your current system, see page 141.

ResQmax Line Deployment Kit


Everything you need to launch a 3 mm messenger line up to 350 ft. (107 m). The 500 ft. (152 m) Dacron line has a tensile strength of 500 lbf. Once you have the messenger line across, use it to pull across the rescue rope.

WATER RESCUE | Swiftwater Harness

CMC ProSeries SRT Harness


UL Classified to NFPA 1983 Class III
Designed in cooperation with a large Southern California fire departments aviation unit and USAR teams to meet their requirements for an ergonomic rescue swimmer harness, the ProSeries SRT Harness combines vertical lift capability while being worn underneath a PFD. Extensive field testing by Swiftwater Rescue Technicians, USAR Specialists, and lifeguards resulted in this unique harness design with the following features: Y-shape shoulder straps allow freedom of movement for swimming. Sternum extension tether positions a carabiner where its needed for quick, positive, dynamic hook ups. Unique wraparound chest strap provides additional support to help keep the harness from interfering with PFDs. Non-padded leg loops allow greater freedom of movement for kicking, but are comfortable during hoists or short-hauls. The harness includes a front waist D-Ring for rappels and a rear waist D-Ring for travel restraint inside a helicopter. The harness is manufactured using polyester web to minimize strength loss when wet and to allow for quicker drying. Stainless steel and vinyl coated hardware reduces corrosion from frequent exposure to water. Weight: 5 lbs. (2.3 kg)

This limited warranty excludes, and CMC shall not be liable for, any incidental, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages arising out of the breach of the express or implied warranties on sales by CMC or otherwise. This limited warranty in no way limits or alters other manufacturers' warranties on products that are sold or distributed by CMC. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts nor the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
