Rapid Deployment and Evacuation Systems


CTS is a Firefighter/Paramedic owned Oregon company that manufactures and distributes a product line designed to enhance the rescuers ability to provide quality driven, effective, and safe pre-hospital care for both patients and the care providers. CTS products are made in the USA and designed and tested by real, professional firefighters, and EMT’s with over 40 years of street medicine experience.

CTS is working to change paradigms that have existed for centuries. Since the days of the Roman empire, we have been dragging, pulling and hauling the sick and injured; often with little concern for our own safety and wellbeing. Back, knee, shoulder and other injuries can put us on the sidelines or worse. A severe injury, like the thousands that occur every year in our industry, can terminate a career in the blink of an eye. It’s OK to change! Ergonomics in the workplace used to be a foreign concept in the world of Fire, Rescue and EMS. Ergonomics is now a driving force in keeping us safe. CTS is leading the way with products designed to reduce injury potential to the rescuers while they provide transportation and care.
