This system aides in conducting team searches when conditions such as building construction, layout, and/or inherent hazards are beyond the scope of the ordinary search techniques. It includes a search rope with direction and distance markers every 25', a stuff bag, and a Safer Search Device (SSD) that slides along the rope and automatically locks in place. The SSD has attachment loops for tag lines, to provide connection point for multiple rope operations, or to secure a tie off point.
Lock/direction markers and distance markers help firefighters know their position along the search rope
Markers are designed to allow for quick and easy rope deployment from the bag
All are anodized machined 6061-T6 aluminum
Shapes are easy to feel with a gloved hand
Markers are locked in place with a stainless steel set screw
