Devices such as Rescue Glides are critical for recovering and transporting downed horses or horses that have been injured or trapped, require anesthesia, and need to be safely moved. They are often used in conjunction with
Slip Sheets to reduce friction when moving horses over ground or pavement.
The Rescue Glide can be used in tandem with the Stokes basket for bringing up a human victim or gear.
The Rescue Glide and Slip Sheets are held on the center board on Rescue-1.
The Rescue Glide and Slip Sheets are held in the overhead rack on Rescue-3.
The team also carries a Foal Glide for foals and small animal rescues.
