Gauldal Brann og Redning (Fire and Rescue Sevices) chooses RescueRunner for swift water rescue
To minimize the number of drownings that occurs every year in the river that runs through the two Norwegian counties called Midtre Gauldal and Melhus, the local fire rescue services will now invest in a RescueRunner system.
Gauldal Brann og Redning, south of Trondheim, Norway with their eight part-time stations have the main responsibility for all swift water rescue as well as for searching for missing persons along the coast where the river runs out in the sea. The river itself is a very popular place for salmon fishing, and it draws a lot of visitors due to that. Their new RescueRunner system has been selected because of its robustness and capabilities of withstanding the tough conditions rapid water rescue involves and to enable Gauldal Brann og Redning to carry out searching actions in shallow swift waters with a lot of debris. "It is very encouraging to see that yet another fire and rescue services chooses our RescueRunner as the most suitable and robust system for their demanding operations", says Linda Ahl, VP / Sales and Business Development Manager, Safe at Sea AB (publ)
