Rescue RashieTM is a life-saving aid developed by Westpac and CPR Kids. It has been designed in collaboration with CPR experts to put CPR instructions where they’re needed most, at rescuers’ fingertips.
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.
Sizes for ages 2 - 8 years
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.

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.
