TO SAVE OUR OWN.
In the past, the mindset was to adapt rope rescue into emergence evacuation. FRS is taking the opposite approach -- we are taking emergency evacuation and integrating it into rope rescue.
We originally developed the FAST (Firefighter Assistance Search Team) Board with the specific intent to be able to remove a firefighter from a basement.
Since that time, we have continued to refine the FAST Board to included uses in situations such as Ice rescue, water rescue, confined space rescue, mass casualty, and active shooter scenarios.
Five or Die - give them a fighting chance!
