* ''KikisDeliveryService'' has a charming use of this trope at the end of the film. After Kiki saves Tombo, firefighters rush a safety tramp below the kids as they slowly descend, just as a safety precaution considering the weight Kiki had to manage with her flight power.

* An ''Series/{{Emergency}}'' episode, "Details," had the firefighters have to use a life net to evacuate John and Roy off a burning building. The Station 51 captain noted that was the only time he's ever seen that piece of equipment used.

* Life nets used to be standard equipment for fire rescues with a usual upper jump height limit of six storeys, although eight storey jumps have been noted. However, the life net was phased out by the 1980s since it was too dangerous with a real risk of jumpers landing on the hard rim or a firefighter holding it up or worse, missing the net altogether. Today, aerial apparatus fire trucks are used instead since they enable firefighters to simply reach up to victims to get them down.
