Derby Helo Strap

CMC Rescue

Our Derby Helo Strap™ extraction device attaches to the helicopter hoist hook for a
short-haul or hoist rescue operation. The system allows the rescuer to maintain a position behind the subject securing them around the chest area to perform a quick rescue evacuation. Two cinch straps with handles adjust to quickly secure the subject into the system. Originally developed by a southern California fire department for flood channel rescue, the strap can be used for helicopter hoist pick-off rescues from water or cliffs. Heavy-duty webbing and construction used for long life and durability in harsh environments.


Not intended for a patient with a spinal injury or injuries that require a litter evacuation.
