        This is the official Academic Crest of all Element Rescue, LLC affiliated advanced higher learning institutions.  It may resemble or remind you of a prestigious academic crest like Harvard's..... and it should. Mainly because our emblem is also a crest and it has a similar color...In contrast ,we aren’t whining, baby, rich kids, (this excludes Dave Callaway...and his wife...and one other person but I can’t recall their name) who get spoon fed irrelevant crap that will allow you to make a six figure salary.  We also happen to not be accredited as any type of university.  On top of that, we really aren’t (technically) a higher learning institution, nor do we (technically) have any affiliates.  Not to worry, we do have a PhD program of instruction in Bad Ass Rescue.  As a side note, if you happen to be well-versed in Bad Ass rescue, you should ask yourself, "Do I really need to strive for bad ass status in anything else?"...(The answer...no).  And as a final, very important note...We DO drink Guinness beer, and HAVE partaken in the consumption of Irish Car bombs within a 3 mile radius of Harvard, and since Guinness is “wicked” popular in Boston ("Baaahstahnn") and the surrounding areas...(including freakin’ Cambridge),  we believe that participating in these activities in such close proximity to educational institutions of such high caliber, qualifies us as having a substantial (yet unoffical) connection or affiliation with the aforementioned institution. (at least that's what we've been told)...(but by a very reliable source)...(actually, that's what we heard from a friend, of a friend, whose brother may (or may not) work at NASA, which would make him really credible in my opinion).  Also, Harvard’s Crest has Latin writing (lame), and ours has halligans (totally awesome)...enough said.

Pimp My Kit - Episode One: A look at a new hoistable evacuation platform, some coffee & mustache wax

Many of us for the past...well... I guess decades have found ourselves carrying a hoist litter for urban, mountain, and helicopter operations, that somewhat resembles a golf bag.  No one ever really wants to be the person responsible for carrying this thing whether fast roping, hiking, crawling, or whatever your insertion method of choice may be.  We started messing with the Phantom Hoist a few years ago, and did a few blogs on it (on our old website), the only thing we really couldn't do with the Phantom Hoist compared to the traditional product was dragging.  So...we introduced the Phantom Hoist to the Foxtrot litter over dinner and drinks to see what the result would be the next morning...add a quad fold, a 6 mil bag and vacuum sealer, and you have 50 Shades of Rescue...and a bad ass ,much smaller and manageable low profile kit capability.
