Float / Water rescue equipment


Float is a device with self-help and help-saving functions. When people approach it, by pressing the red button, its pontoon can be changed from standing up to floating on the sea surface, so that people can use less energy to get on the pontoon and get out of the water: The rotary switch separates the floating plate from the platform and is connected by a rope, which can make rescued people safer and expand the rescue area at the same time, so that more people can be rescued.
