Door Ease Trac Pak Egress Identifying Safety System and Target Exit Device

Safety Orientated Operational Concept

Door Ease is a true Target Exit Device, designed to greatly improve fire ground interior operations by quickly identifying entry and exit points and illuminating travel routes. Now with the introduction of the Trac Pak holster from 5.11, Tactical it is a true Safety Orientated Operational Concept.

Door Ease actually uses the smoke as an illuminator. Other useful applications: Enhance RIT Operations (Rapid Intervention Teams or F.A.S.T. teams), marking searched areas, or use as a flashlight. Operates for 21+ hours on 3 standard AAA batteries.

Door Ease was designed and has endorsements from this country's best known fire instructors.

The Concept & Deployment of the "Crumb Theory"

The concept and deployment of the Crumb Theory

As a search and rescue team progresses into an active structure fire they deploy Door Ease from their Trac Pac holsters.

In the picture example, is a simple 3 unit residential deployment, in which 1 unit is placed at the entry door, the second is placed at the top of the stair landing, and the third unit is placed at the door of the room to be searched.

This simple 3 unit deployment, ensures a well defined and illuminated entry and exit route through the thickest smoke conditions.

This concept will ensure higher confidence levels within the S/R team which in turn equates into greater task function productivity and piece of mind to the rescuers performing the search.
