NEW! Lifeline Suppressor™ Series
Lifeline® Rescue Tools introduces a brand new professional series, Suppressor™. This innovative rescue tool is ideal for offshore oil and gas, as well as mining and utility industry applications due to its specialized spark suppressant technology and non-conductive rubber with electrical-insulating handles to reduce the chance of electric shock when working with or near electrical current or live wire.
Whether it’s roughnecks facing the intense dangers involved in oil rigging and mining or lineman working at extreme heights while installing and maintaining power lines, we understand the risks and dangers associated with the offshore oil and the utility industries. Lifeline® developed a unique subset of its rescue tools to support such workers while they conduct highly dangerous and complex operations. This tailor-made tool is manufactured from titanium alloy, a non-ferrous material to suppress or prevent inadvertent sparking in highly flammable environments. Suppressor™ is available in two colors, orange, and black.
Drawing directly from the original technology of the Lifeline® Fire™ Series of rescue tools, which includes its patent-pending one-handed releasing sheath and highly aggressive serrations that cut through most larger and more difficult materials, the new Lifeline® Suppressor™ expands our mission to provide handheld lifesaving tools to everyone working in uniquely dangerous conditions and industries.

While driving southbound on Route 208, I witnessed a passenger vehicle veer right into the shoulder and make contact with a snowbank and guard rail then flip to stop on its hood and roof. I dismounted my vehicle with my Lifeline Extrication Tool in hand. Upon further sizeup of the vehicle, I found that the fuel tank was leaking. After performing a rapid physical assessment, I braced the victim with my shoulder, removed the Lifeline Extrication Tool from its sheath, found a safe area away from the victim’s’ body and with a few passes of the tools’ teeth, I freed the victim from the seat belt with ease.
I’m a Heavy Equipment Operator/Driver on Rescue 2 with the Milwaukee Fire Department. I have been using the LifeLine SRK for 4 months now and absolutely love this knife for vehicle extractions. This knife/tool is very versatile and has replaced many tools in my pocket. It breaks car windows with ease and cuts through braided wire quickly. I have used it to cut through a laminated front windshield and it still has a sharp edge to cut any seat belt. The sheath and knife hang conveniently from my bunker coat and can be deployed quickly by myself with one hand or anyone standing close to me. In my opinion, this knife is worth every penny and couple it with its guarantee it becomes priceless.
We have had an opportunity to test the Lifeline Rescue Tool in our flashover facility. After multiple evaluations, the tools have held up and performed flawlessly. Our instructors were impressed with the design and quality of the tool.
