Saving Lives by Design.

I’ve been a firefighter for over 25 years. I’ve always felt the need to have a personal sized rescue tool to save myself and others in tough situations. Over the years I’ve carried numerous tools in my pockets to do the job. When I bought my Lifeline Gen 1 tool it did all I needed plus more. The tool is easy to deploy 1 handed, cuts thru seatbelts, wires, sheetrock, and just about any other material I needed it for.

Chief Ken Bogart, New Haven Vol Fire Dept. New Haven NY

While performing a search at a building, a fire member became entangled in hanging wires, the tool was used to effectively cut through wires causing the entanglement.

Lieutenant Anthony Zaccaro Jr., FDNY

“…..The passenger of the vehicle had become entrapped in the vehicle with her feet protruding through the firewall and her legs wrapped in the vehicle’s floor pan. I entered the vehicle through an open driver’s side door to establish patient care as the first due ALS provider. As the extrication process began, my Lifeline Rescue Tool was used to displace the windshield as well as remove the headliner and seat belts of the vehicle in order for the roof to be removed….”
