The stretcher can be operated by as few as two rescuers. This improves safety for both the rescuers and the casualty.
How Safe Is the Excel Stretcher for the Casualty?
As the injured individual may be suffering from unknown complications, it's vital that they're strapped into the stretcher securely. The strapping system allows for their chest, arms, thighs, and lower legs to be positioned safely. The three-point non-slip forehead strap also holds the casualty's head in place, while a figure-of-eight strap secures the feet.

The Ferno Paraguard Excel Rescue Stretcher is incredibly hygienic and easy to maintain. It is impervious to oil, water, and grease, and is also resistant to rot. Additionally, the fully heat-sealed flaps are easy to clean for enhanced infection control.
How Easy Is It to Store the Stretcher?
A stretcher is an essential bit of kit for an emergency search and rescue team, and it's important to ensure it remains protected when not in use. As such, a valise backpack is provided with the stretcher to keep it safe and secure during both transportation to locations and when not in use.
