Doctor Down® is a Montana company that designs and manufactures the world’s best Emergency Transport System known as The Rescue Wrap®. True to it’s name, the Rescue Wrap® provides unparalleled ease of use, convenience, durability, and patient comfort for emergency rescue.

In 1992, the crew of St. Patrick Hospital’s Life Flight in Missoula, Montana called Three Dog Down, (our sister company, the only natural down outlet in Montana), requesting help with a patient transport wrap.

They were dissatisfied with the standard blanket system. They challenged us to develop a lightweight emergency transport bedding system that would specifically address patient comfort (and crew safety). Regardless of patient size, they needed a system that provided easy, unlimited 360° access, durable materials, and comfortable warmth. The Rescue Wrap® answered all these needs and more.

Over the years, we have worked with multiple crews on the ground to develop the equipment you need, when you need it. Our Wraps are made right here in America, and we stand behind them 100%.
