The revolutionary Pool Extraction Board (PXB) is now available to order!

The eagerly anticipated Pool Extraction Board (PXB), created in partnership with the RLSS UK and Ferno UK is now available to order from RLSS Direct.

The new design creates faster rescue times, offers improved safety and has the potential to reduce demands placed on staff whilst ensuring the casualty is extracted from the pool with the correct care and attention.

The PXB will be delivered from RLSS Direct from 1 June 2016.

RLSS UK is currently in the training stages of the board roll out – find out how NTAs and TAs can train to deliver training and updates below:
