Prusik Bypass White Paper

You may recall some posts on our social media last year (and again this year) about prussic bypasses and whether or not they are necessary on control lines. We had several surveys and a couple teaser images hinting at the testing and results.

This past week the International Technical Rescue Symposium (ITRS) was held in Golden, Colorado. Kevin had the opportunity to travel and finally present the work that we as a company have been sitting on for some time.

This project would not have been possible without the support of the following individuals and organizations. Their generous contributions of time and equipment as well as their passion for this discipline made this research a reality. From all of us at Vector Rescue, thank you!

  • CMC

  • Sterling RopeTeufelberger/New England Ropes

  • Total Rescue

  • New Milford High School

  • Mr. Stephen Donahue

  • Mr. Michael Grasso

  • Mr. Clifford Freer

The white paper is linked at the top and bottom of this article. Check it out. We’d love to hear your feedback. Leave a comment on the page or reach out to us here if you have any questions.
