Viking Life-Saving Equipment offers instructional videos

Marine and fire safety equipment provider Viking Life-Saving Equipment produced instructional and informative videos for its line of RescYou life rafts.

Three videos, one for each of the life rafts in the RescYou range, describe the elements of the life rafts and take the viewer step by step through the equipment list. In addition to the life raft videos, Viking said, users can take advantage of detailed instructional videos in 3-D that explain how to mount the life raft container onto a yacht.

Although Viking’s's own life raft products take center stage in the videos, the company has taken a broader approach that seeks to educate yachting and leisure craft buyers, bringing helpful advice for use in emergency and rescue situations.

"We would only be happy if sailors could make use of our videos on YouTube to become even more familiar with their onboard safety equipment," Viking Life-Saving Equipment regional sales director Dorte M. Hansen said in a statement. "Time is essential in an emergency situation, and knowing how to handle your life raft may ultimately save lives."

Viking national sales manager Karen Hansen hosts the videos. They are available on Viking’s YouTube channel.
