LIFELINE / Rescue Firetruck


High rise fire rescue is a worldwide problem. Lifeline is a sliding cable rescue fire truck, and its built-in UAV can transport the tripod fixing ropes to the fire-resisting floor of the high-rise buildings. The trapped people can drive the sliding cable to quickly fall into the air cushion at the rear of the fire truck after putting on the protective equipment on the tripod. It adopts the recycling type sliding rope. When the former trapped person slides down, another set of protective equipment will be pulled to the rescue position.
