Genesis Rescue Systems feels that there tools are better built and more superior to any other rescue tool on the market today. That is why Genesis is the only Rescue tool manufacturer (both hydraulic and battery operated) to stand behind their products with a lifetime warranty. All Genesis Rescue Tools and parts are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the tools. If Genesis determine that one of the Rescue Tools is defective, they will, repair or replace any of the components as long as the Hampton Township Volunteer Fire Department owns them.
Also the Hampton Township Volunteer Fire Department has purchased a RHYNO Windshield Cutter. By September 2017, the United States Code of Federal Regulations will require all motor vehicles to have laminated window glass in all windows. This was implemented to prevent full or partial ejection. This critical change requires an advanced glass management tool that can safely access patients with speed and dexterity. There is no tool on the market that can get the job done as safely and quickly as the RHYNO Windshield Cutter
The RHYNO Windshield Cutter is a unique, battery powered hand tool utilized to safely and rapidly cut laminated glass in motor vehicles. The RHYNO Windshield Cutter was specially designed with three primary goals in mind.
1) Patient Safety:
Protrudes less than one (1) inch into the occupant compartment, significantly reducing the risk of patient injury.
Cuts on the upstroke, directing the majority of glass debris upward and outward, ejecting it outside the vehicle. Airborne glass dust is minimized and a heavy glass debris field absent.
Blades can be run directly against the patient’s skin with remarkable safety. Patients will simply feel a minor vibration as they are cut free.
2) User Safety:
Light weight less than 3 pounds
Safe and easy to use
Remarkable maneuverability with one hand, making it ideal for rollovers, and situations with limited leverage opportunity.
Can be easily controlled to cut tight corners, offering precision cutting with great maneuverability.
Staying within the Golden Hour means every second counts. Our Rescue Technicians must use all available means to get our patient out. The RHYNO was specifically designed to safely remove motor vehicle glass in less than a minute. With a low working profile coupled with easy of control, the RHYNO provides quick patient access without sacrificing safety.
