What is the KrusePak?
The KrusePak is an innovative, patented piece of firefighting equipment, or essentially a transport sling, for SCBA air tanks & various small tools used in the fire service - or any emergency situation. Although it was originally created to assist specifically in high rise fires, the KrusePak has expanded it's productivity and was found to be useful in residential, commercial, rural and industrial fires, standpipe operations, commercial water vessels, extrication, air chisel, scuba, tactical rescue, Hazmat and various other emergency operations.
The KrusePak allows each firefighter the ability to carry two spare SCBA bottles and other various small tools COMPLETELY HANDS-FREE. Depending on each individual's strength, comfort and/or preference, it may be carried several ways - hung over your air pack (with or without hose), hung over your shoulder, or cross-body to distribute weight most evenly (one cylinder in front and one in back). All methods offer hands-free movement for easy spare bottle transport and increased safety for the firefighter.
The KrusePak is highly durable, water resistant and boasts a handle, padded strap, grommets to attach rope or other various tools by use of carabiners (carabiners not included) and 2 pockets for small rescue tools such as wedges, wire cutters, knives, window punches, etc. Additionally, the KrusePak allows for easy identification of "full" bottles vs "empty" bottles while on the fire scene's resource staging area and also identifies each company's bottles in a mutual aid situation.
