Ice Rescue
Compare ladder crawl and RDC:
Positives of ladder crawl:
- ready faster, no time for inflation,
- weight of rescuer is spread to area of ladder width and lenght,
- almost any fire fighter rescue car has it as standard,
- several successful rescues made.
Disadvantage of ladder crawl:
- wet technique,
- crawling difficulties while snow on ice,
- no flotation of ladder,
- difficult rescue in mixed environment (water and ice),
- dry suite mandatory,
- very high risk scenario in case of ice breaking.

Advantages of RDC:
- high flotation, carries safely up to 5 persons,
- large area weight spread on thin ice,
- lightweight,
- access to breaked ice without need to walk to the edge of ice cut,
- multipurpose usage (snow mobile, white water craft, transport of a victim...)
- safe and relatively dry platform for rescue.
Disadvantage of RDC:
- unpacking and inflating time training necessary,
- not as a standard rescue equipment in fire fighters units.
