Ruth Lee

Ruth Lee are the experts in fire and rescue training manikins. With more than 60 years’ experience, we are dedicated to helping professionals who save lives by supplying essential equipment for their training.

Our extensive range of manikins includes Fire House manikins, which are perfect for BA snatch rescue training and ‘hot fire cell’ training and are able to withstand temperatures of around 160°C/320°F at floor level (400°C/752°F at the ceiling!).

In response to recommendations from the Chief Fire Officers Association for recruitment and annual fitness tests, we have also created a Casualty Evacuation manikin. This manikin comes complete with drag harness and leg protectors for added durability.

With the prevalence of obesity in the UK, one of our most popular ranges is our Bariatric manikins. These weigh in at 90kgs (198lbs), 180kgs (397lbs) and 260kgs (573lbs) to allow your teams to practise rescues involving larger people. The 90kgs model is perfect for when additional bulk is required without too much excessive weight.

This is just a short overview of our full range which can be found at

At Ruth Lee, we understand that you need manikins which are as hardworking as your team! We are therefore committed to the design and manufacture of products which are versatile, fit-for-purpose and durable.
