The Personal Retriever™ ...is the only U.S. Coast Guard approved, buoyant, rapid response, multi-use, water and ice rescue disk, with 100-foot reach. The Personal Retriever out performs all throw able water-rescue devices. The Life Safer Personal Retriever™ is a United States Coast Guard (USCG) approved, state-of-the-art, throw able Personal Flotation Device (PFD) developed to enable first responders ashore or afloat the ability to quickly retrieve people from the water or from frozen rivers, lakes and streams.
The Retriever provides the optimum balance of buoyancy and size in an aerodynamic/hydrodynamic shape. The 100 feet of integrated floating line allows for a quick recovery. The attachment point of the line makes the Retriever skim on top of the water allowing it to station keep in swift water or be quickly retrieved with a minimum of effort. Extra line can easily be attached to the Retriever allowing it to be used from high profile vessels or bridges.
The Retriever’s aerodynamic shape makes it very accurate and easy to use. Initial training time is usually less than an hour and recurrent training is only needed a few times a year to maintain optimum proficiency.
