The tragedy of 9/11 changed the world as we knew it. The images of people jumping out of New York’s Twin Towers are emblazoned on the memories of all who watched, not least because they highlight the tragic limitations of First Responders who were powerless to rescue many of the victims. Following this tragedy, the New York Fire Department approached the Israeli army for solutions and the result was the SkySaver Backpack (which has since evolved into a suite of rescue products for home-use and in professional settings such as on wind turbines and cranes). SkySaver offers the only CDD in the market that has passed rigorous testing and can be proactively installed onsite even in the presence of damaging elements such as heat, fire, cold, water and salt. This means that SkySaver does not have to be transported to disaster-sites in emergency situations where even a small delay can have dire consequences. SkySaver is also the only solution on the market that enables the immediate evacuation of injured and incapacitated workers without specially-trained rescuers.
