The original LIFELINE® Rescue Tool is a one-of-a-kind device designed by firefighters to protect firefighters. Co-developed with Phillips Precision Medicraft, a leading medical manufacturer with 50 years of engineering and manufacturing experience, PPM’s facility provides the technology and precision manufacturing needed to create a tool with the most aggressive blade in the industry.

The success, versatility, and effectiveness of the original product led to the development of a new series of professional tools for specific military, underwater, oil rigging, utility, and commercial fishing applications. The design and engineering of each new device were done with direct input from industry experts, resulting in application-specific upgrades. All feature the same high-quality materials, unique manufacturing process, and have been tested under severe conditions with outstanding results.

News Flash: MVA with Entrapment Testimonial From Firefighter Bandon Wayne Edwards, CFD

“Today while operating on an MVA with entrapment Engine Company 30 arrived on the scene, assessed the vehicle and decided to provide access through the windshield, for rescue and truck companies in route to the scene. Crews used the LIFELINE® Rescue Tool, a personal extrication tool to start removing the windshield for patient evaluation and access. The ease of making an access point with the butt of the tool and then transitioning to cutting the windshield and removal of the windshield was easily accomplished. Clean cuts with minimal shards and glass dust were very evident. Leaving a good access point for patient evaluation, once the windshield was removed the patient was able to walk out of the vehicle through the removed windshield and taken to ems crews for an evaluation.”

Our thanks to Firefighter Brandon Wayne Edwards for sharing his personal experience with our tool. Your account of this day reminds us that our mission to support those who help others is making a difference. ~ Team LIFELINE® Rescue Tools
