The B.E.L.L is useful for everyone responsible for others, such as Lifeguards and teachers, and being compact it should be included in all lifesaving kits. Used with its own webbing belt, the B.E.L.L. is ideal for carrying by everyone, ensuring that there is a rescue line readily available for throwing wherever an emergency occurs.
Its lightweight design and FLIKSTIK compatibility means anyone can achieve distance with the B.E.L.L.. In many water emergencies, the device may well prove to be the best chance of succeeding in a rescue. Unlike a lifebuoy or throwbag, if you can’t reach the person, you can’t rescue them.
Equally, while it is not recommended to enter the water when assisting a rescue, there will always be instances where this may be necessary. In such cases, the B.E.L.L. can be attached to the rescuer to provide a LIFE LINE back to shore.
Ice & Mud Rescue
Sadly, each year we hear of terrible accidents involving children who play on ice, or dog owners who go in to freezing water to rescue their pet. Whilst time is always a critical factor in any emergency, the freezing water adds to the urgency. Fortunately, the B.E.L.L. is ideal for skittling across ice directly to a victim, or thrown as above, providing a LIFE LINE back to shore that will give a higher chance of a rescue for everyone.
In an event where a person becomes stranded in mud a B.E.L.L. device can be thrown. Once direct contact has been made, it is much easier to work out a rescue strategy.
With any outdoor activity, on or near water, a Balcan Emergency Life Line can help ensure that if an emergency occurs, the most versatile lifesaving equipment is readily available. Its compact design means it can be carried in a pocket or picnic basket as easily as any sports bag. Supplied with its own clip, the B.E.L.L. can also be fitted into the family car or boat to be nearby if needed.
