The 3BT REGIONAL (Three Boat) Water Rescue Trailer was designed as a lighter 3BT model with speed, safety and operation for water rescue technicians in mind.
The 3BT REGIONAL is more than a trailer – it is a purpose built, self-sufficient operational asset that provides added safety, security, and overall capacity to meet the uncompromising demands of water rescue. There is storage on the front end of the trailer for a motor carts, rescue gear or a readily available DLX-ASAP rapid shelter system to support command, operations, and/or logistics.
The storage area is designed to support three DLX custom boat motor carts (optional storage ramp required). The motor carts are custom designed with four (4) sturdy off road wheels to take the motors to the water’s edge. The motor carts roll up & down the storage ramp, which can be deployed on both sides of the trailer.
The BIRD (Boat Insertion & Recovery Device) is a two-wheeled system that allows one person to easily move and control a boat with motor from the trailer and deploy it into the water maximizing use of your personnel. The BIRD is money well spent – it reduces the need for four-six personnel to deploy a boat but it also significantly reduces risk of injury.
Identified Past-Operation Challenges (before the DLX-3BT):
Just like any other product design from Deployed Logix, the DLX-3BT was designed to offer a solution that improved on noticeable operational and logistical challenges in the field. Addressing several of these challenges was the goal of the DLX-3BT:
- Transport and rapid deployment of multiple boats, motors, and support equipment on a single trailer and vehicle package
- Capability for establishing quick command and logistical support
- Ergonomic transport and deployment of boat motors
- Faster and easier transport of boats and motors to the water
- Better spare motor storage and security
- A changing/dressing area that provides both privacy / protection from elements
- Increased safety in night operations
- Lightweight overall package with extensive storage capacity
