A RAPID Intervention Rescue Device: The RITE Rescue System was originally designed by firefighters to remove unconscious victims from below grade or from tight spaces. The system weighs less than 6 lbs and has a NFPA 1983 rated full body harness. Easy to deploy and reset in seconds, the system can be used to drag, carry, lift or lower a victim during confined space extrications.
