Throw bags are lightweight bags with a line that can be thrown at a target during swift water rescue operations. Responders use throw bags to reach victims during water rescue operations.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Throw Bags are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
