When a first responder arrives at a scene – be it a house fire, a car accident or some other emergency situation – they need to know that they’re prepared to get the job done successfully. Having the right tools on-hand – such as a rescue blanket – plays a major role in their success, and can often be the difference between life and death. Fortunately, that’s something you can plan for long before the 9-1-1 call comes in.
As part of its line of high-performing, protective blankets, Kovenex offers a rescue blanket that offers unparalleled protection in emergency situations: the Kovenex Rapid Response Blanket, a must-have for every structural firefighter, extrication expert, EMT and EMS personnel.

Tested to several National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and flammability standards (including ASTM D6413, ASTM D4151 and ASTM D5587), Kovenex’s fibers act synergistically to create a flame-resistant thermal barrier.
