A specialized rescue product designed for extreme cases in which a rescuer needs to be lowered head-first into a confined space to perform a rescue. The Confined Space/Head First Extraction System (HFES) allows the rescuer to be lowered comfortably into a confined space head first, harness the victim, and raise both victim and rescuer out of a confined space. Consists of an adjustable lifting strap, an adjustable victim strap, one pair of ankle harnesses, two carabineers, and a storage bag. This small, compact system can be used with any confined space retrieval equipment such as tripods and davits.
