Rescue Rashie

Helping to put CPR Instructions where they are needed most, at rescuers fingertips.

Clever, one-of-a-kind design

Rescue RashieTM is simple, functional and an innovation in swim wear. It features vital, easy to follow CPR instructions that are concealed when not needed, then revealed via a simple zip in the event of emergency. Using sublimation printing, the CPR instructions are specially embedded into the fabric, meaning they won’t peel or scratch off.

CPR instructions on every child in Australia

Even though CPR instructions are a vital part of Australian water safety, CPR signs can’t always be where you need them. But where there’s water, there are always kids in rashies. That’s why we’re aiming to get every child in Australia in a Rescue RashieTM, helping put CPR instructions at waterways and swimming spots all across the country.

"Rescue Rashie puts CPR instructions right in front of you. Your hands need to be on that child’s chest exactly where those instructions are, that’s how we save lives."

Sarah Hunstead - Paediatric Nurse & Founding Director of CPR Kids

"The way you get people to react instantaneously is to give them really simple instructions right in front of their nose and I think that Westpac Rescue Rashie does exactly that."

Professor Paul Middleton - Director of Emergency Medicine Research Unit, Liverpool Hospital & Chair of Take Heart Australia

Water safety

No one wants to find themselves in a situation where CPR is needed. That’s why staying safe around waterways is the best way to save lives. A Rescue RashieTM is not a floatation device, it will not prevent drowning. So remember, when it comes to being around any kind of water, if in doubt, stay out.



Rescue RashieTM vest will not protect against drowning. Use only under constant supervision. This is not a floatation device. CPR instructions suitable for 2-8 years. Instructions not suitable for infants.
