FLUX is an avalanche rescue tool designed to improve survivability rates of avalanche victims by using a new approach to rescue excavation which will ultimately save more lives. Every year approximately one-hundred and fifty people trigger an avalanche causing them to be swept into their own icy tomb. A shovel is the clear candidate for a new design because the excavation phase of the rescue remains the most time consuming component of an avalanche rescue. For an avalanche victim, one or two minutes are the difference between life and death. The FLUX avalanche rescue tool speeds up rescues and saves more lives.
