The Interesting History of Life Rings
As early as 870 BC, army soldiers used inflatable animal skins to cross moats. 700 years later, Leonardo da Vinci drew sketches of a diving suit and lifebelt in the 16th century. However, it wasn’t until the formation of lifesaving services that the issue of safety was taken seriously. Using wood blocks or vests filled with cork, Norwegian seafarers were first to construct lifesaving devices in the early 1800’s. Life preserver use became widespread only after organizations, such as Britain’s Royal National Lifeboat Institution, began using them a few decades later.
