For IRB driver training you can now train year round, in the roughest surf, close to the reef and in the coldest weather to practice those fast pick ups as many times as you like. This dummy never complains about the cold water, the aching arms and the sore shoulder or jaw from when the rescuer slightly misjudged the pick up! These manikins will provide a uniformity in the size and weight of casualties being rescued, an important factor in competitions.

The problem for many SLS clubs is to find enough willing volunteers to act as a patient for the IRB rescue teams for practice, especially during the colder months - consequently, skill development suffers. Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) competitions/training aims to:

  • Allow crews to demonstrate their techniques and abilities to perform rescues.
  • Bring crews together to discuss and improve IRB techniques and operations.
  • Promote safety awareness techniques for the crew and patients in simulated rescue scenarios.
  • FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Shortened to 1.5m to be more manageable for a range of rescuers.
  • Dry weight reduced to 20kg, which increases to about 40+kg when pulled from the water.
  • Weighting lowered from the torso to the hips to improve stability in a moving sea.
  • Boots removed and replaced with durable PVC sleeves on lower leg to reduce drag during extraction.
  • Arms are built aloft to simulate a volunteer 'patient' - no dislocated shoulders or wrists!
  • A polypropylene loop to the back allows the manikin to be lowered into position or hung up to dry.
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make the manikins very conspicuous in open water.
  • Polyethylene strips running from the shoulders to the knees allow flexibility in and out of the water but prevent the manikin from being too 'floppy'.
  • Protective overalls are user replaceable and greatly extend the life of the manikin
  • Height: 4' 11"
  • Weight: 44 lbs. (20 kg)


  • TechNOTE - Ruth Lee Training Manikin Coveralls

    Ruth Lee is the only manikin manufacturer that provides clothing with their products. All Ruth Lee Rescue Training Manikins include coveralls. Manikins 44 lbs and up also include lug sole boots. None is found on Bullex products; and Simulaids only adds thin gym shorts. While the strength reinforced coveralls protect the manikin, they are not deemed Wear Proof. Their specific design is to provide a replaceable, washable layer that helps protect the manikin. The coveralls are designed to wear and must be replaced so that the manikin carcass is protected. Use of the manikins should mimic that of dragging a similarly dressed victim. The wear resistance of the coveralls should be considered to be on par with clothing normally worn by the victims. The included coveralls protect the manikin when used during rescue training. The coveralls are not designed to endure the rigors of firefighter drags or physical agility training. The coveralls and boots should be seen as disposable items and should be replaced when showing signs of wear or damage in order to protect the main body of the manikin. Additional clothing is suggested for use in these activities (Even the Combat Challenge dresses their manikins in turnout Gear for this competition). Treat the coveralls as clothing. They are NOT wear proof. Protect your investment.
