The Mustang Ice Commander Pro Ice Rescue Suit is a modular suit made of a durable urethane-coated nylon shell and a removable buoyancy liner that also provides thermal protection.
For more than 10 years, the Ice Commander™ has set the standard in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for cold water rescue. The IC9002 02 accommodates a wider range of body types while offering unmatched adjustment to suit the needs of individual rescuers.
Along with the integrated boots and gloves, the extended torso and covered diagonal entry zipper allow for quick donning while creating additional flexibility for the rescuer. Multi-point adjustment straps on the wrist, torso and legs and an adjustment zipper on the back of the hood create a near custom fit. A neoprene face guard offers additional protection from icy water and can be folded out of the way when not in use. The face guard can also be pulled to purge off excess air trapped inside the suit. The suits are reinforced in high abrasion areas and are 45% lighter than neoprene suits.
ICE AND WATER RESCUES ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE THE APPROPRIATE TRAINING AND THE APPROPRIATE EQUIPMENT FOR PERFORMING THESE MISSIONS.
The Ice Commander is intended for ice and still/static cold water rescues only by trained professionals with the required and approved operating standards and requirements of their state or county.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
