OZ Lifting Products LLC
Goodview, MN-based OZ Lifting Products LLC has donated two 1-ton capacity beam clamps to the Kingman Unit of the Mohave County (AZ) Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team – a voluntary organization that plays a central role during emergencies. The OZ1 BCA-MR clamps will allow the technical rope rescue team to conduct rappel training. Amanda Kaufman, captain of the Kingman search and rescue unit, said the clamps will be used to support a rappel line from an overhead beam during a training drill based on one of the most hazardous disciplines it encounters: short-haul rescue from an operational helicopter. Rescuers use the rappel line and practice braking and releasing techniques.
