High-rise building rescue system has always been a tough shell to crack in the field of fire rescue. There are many cases of mass casualties because we can’t provide timely or adequate high-rise building rescue. Dormitories, residential buildings, downtown, malls, office buildings, these are all places which can easily catch fire because of the high population density and mobility, as well as the lack of fire awareness. Thus, once there is a fire, people are more easily to get trapped and cause a difficult situation for rescuing. The goal of Fire Rescue Air Cushion is to save as many people as we can in a short time.

There are several ways to rescue people that are trapped in a high building, like fire truck, fire air cushion on the ground and safety rope on a fixed spot. However, for the most of the times, fire truck or the air cushion can’t get on time while the safety rope can’t always find a descent spot to tie the knot. Fire usually happens without warning, which makes it unpredictable where people may get trapped. In this case, we need something that can save as many people as we can in a very short time. This is the reason why Fire Rescue Air Cushion can be really handy in emergency situation.
