Rapid Intervention is rarely rapid – The FAST Board changes that! Studies show that the average time for completing a mayday for a downed firefighter is 15-25 minutes. With the FAST Board, you can cut patient packaging times to 30 seconds, with the ability to immediately move horizontally or vertically, decreasing removal times to as little as 3 minutes.
The FAST Board’s single connection point, patented lashing system, and design allow a downed firefighter to be loaded and secure with one click-one pull. This is ideal for a zero-visibility environment. The lashing system is integrated through the board, so by design, the FAST Board functions as a harness. Once this connection is made, one pull tightens the system, and the firefighter is ready to be moved. ONE CONNECTION – ONE PULL.
