Resqme, Inc. is proud to collaborate with Rescue 42 for the release of The Ripper™ Laminated Glass Cutter. Driven by the same mission, Resqme and Rescue 42 strive to make the most efficient, safe and reliable tools for vehicle rescue situations.
Both companies have been in the automotive safety industry for over 20 years. Rescue 42 was founded in 1995. Resqme, Inc. launched in 1998, introducing the original resqme® car escape keychain. Resqme and Rescue 42 are now joining forces to make sure First Responders, EMT, Police and Fire Fighters can work as fast as possible when it comes to vehicle extrication and saving lives.
In response to the recent passing of FMVSS 226, Rescue 42 recently launched The Ripper™, a critical life-saving tool that cuts and removes laminated glass side windows in less than ten seconds. The Ripper™ also incorporates a resqme® car escape tool with a fastened clip to ensure quickness on the field in the event that the vehicle has tempered glass side windows instead of laminated side windows.
If a person is trapped in their vehicle for whatever reason, First Responders now have in their hands the perfect tool for a quick, efficient action, and saving precious seconds and lives. This is a great combination since The Ripper™ is designed to cut through laminated side windows while the resqme® is primarily designed to cut jammed seatbelts and break tempered glass windows. The resqme® blade is also able to cut the tether of a deployed side airbag, so it does not cause obstruction during extrication.
It is such a pleasure for us to partner with a company who shares similar values and has made their mission to create the best safety tools.
Together, we can save more lives!
