Task Force Rescue System

Features & Benefits

Applications, Features and Benefits

Zistos’ WS-TFRST Task Force Rescue System is our FEMA standard rescue system including redundant low light color cameras, two way talkback communication device, display and two articulating poles. The system is designed for one man operation and all pole, camera and audio components are under two inches in diameter for use through FEMA standard two inch [50mm] core holes allowing search teams to optimize time and effectiveness in the field. With a nine foot [2.7m] and three foot [0.9M] pole and redundant camera the Task Force rescue Kit allows a single operator to perform efficient external recon and internal search of a collapsed structure with backup camera and pole to ensure long operation even if a component is damaged.

Designed to locate victims in the shortest amount of time—all while maintaining the safety of the rescue team. The extremely portable and modular design allows the kit to be easily hand-carried over the most challenging terrain and be instantly configured on-site to adapt to any rescue scenario. This inherent adaptability through modular design saves time and, ultimately, lives.
