Testimonials

“Fast Rescue Solutions has developed a very simple yet complex product that is both quick and user friendly. We’ve found that the board minimizes the thinking process at our worst possible moments. By incorporating all the components needed within the board itself, along with its size, shape, and weight we can initiate the rescue of a downed firefighter at a moment’s notice, with minimal man power, from countless situations. In the fire service there are always products claiming to be game changers, which may be so but with FAST Rescue Solutions’ FAST Board, I believe the game has indeed changed.”

"Easy to use and train on and limitless possibilities on use.  This is carried as part of our rescue truck cache not only for FF rescue but also standard equipment for civilian search and rescue"

“We were in the market of purchasing a drag device for our RIC and we saw a few different options. Captain Steve Jason came to show some of our members the FAST Board. Within seconds we all looked at each other and said - 'this piece of equipment is definitely our choice.'  This product is designed well and is very easy to use.  I'm impressed on how many RIC and other rescues situations it can utilized in.”

“In a profession where new tools are being developed there is always a rare one that is truly a game changer. When I first saw the FAST Board and heard who developed it I felt that this had potential. Then I had a hands-on with the FAST Board and was convinced that this was a true game changer in the world of RIT/RIC/FAST rescue operations. I am very fortunate to be part of a fire department that also believes this and after acquiring a FAST Board for our department I truly believe this steps up our RIT operations. The speed at which this is deployed is unmatched to anything else. The versatility of the board from water rescue to high angle lift operations I personally feel that this board should be a required piece of equipment for all departments. “

“At first, we were skeptical about the FAST Board. Like any new invention in the fire service and any change, it takes a lot to make something happen. Chris and Tommy from FAST Rescue Solutions came to us, went over every inch of the board, then got dressed and trained with us, physically showing us how to use it. From that point on we were sold on the FAST Board. Everything we do in this job is dangerous, so proving to us how much it could help us save one of our own was huge. It was a no-brainer, this was going to help us be better for that 'god forbid' moment we would ever need it. We bought one that night.

Not only were Chris and Tommy great at showing us the board and how to use it, they stayed connected with us and offered so much more than just a one-time sale. Since then, we have bought 5 boards total, had department wide hands on training with the boards by FAST Rescue Solutions, and gotten our mutual aid companies involved in the training with the board. IT TRULY WORKS! The versatility of the board and what its capable of doing is amazing yet still simple to use. It has become a common tool on our truck, heavy rescue, and each front-line engine. It gets used every time we drill on RIT, and is an essential tool as part of our RIT equipment. It's required whether we set up RIT or a mutual aid department sets up RIT for us, it’s that important to us. 

Any doubt on this product, get hands-on and put it through the paces. You won’t be disappointed. “

“The board is a wonderful addition to our RIT tool compliment. The size and maneuverability of a lighter, smaller, and faster board makes victim removal that much easier, whether it's used for dragging or lifting.

 “The FAST BOARD is an effective tool that can facilitate action in a confined space such as in a cellar, narrow corridors with the presence of bends, climbing stairs, and vertical escapes without the need to change the support for evacuation. This represents a saving of time in a rescue operation. A single connection point allows to moor the victim on the tray. This is an important element to note because it shows the simplicity and speed of conditioning a victim on the FAST Board.  Conclusion: Its strong point lies in its speed and simplicity of implementation in the dark.”
