FASTY‘s mission spectrum ranges from minor accidents with few casualties to long-duration major rescue missions with many casualties to missions during natural disasters or missions in conditions where rescue equipment cannot operate safely. The complexity of operations and the potential threats at the scene are increasing significantly today. It’s good to have a supporting assistant with you, who can cope with harsh conditions and greatly expands the range of possible operations.

The Maren FASTY Lifeguard Robot. A water rescue multi-talent, when it becomes too dangerous for humans
The innovative and remote-controlled rescue robot FASTY allows you to quickly and safely save people from drowning. FASTY enables initial rescue operations while the rescue team is getting ready. FASTY sometimes even does the rescue without the rescuers having to enter the water.
FASTY enables safe and very fast rescue of drowning persons. The self-propelled water rescue robot reaches endangered persons at up to 15 km/h, i.e. many times faster than a lifeguard or a boat or ship. With the Maren FASTY, there is a high chance of water rescue within the golden rescue time. With FASTY, the chances of a successful rescue within this required rescue time increase. With FASTY, the rescue time can ideally be reduced from over 10 minutes to about 2 minutes.
The conditions in open and stormy waters are extremely dangerous not only for the victims but also for the rescue forces. By using FASTY, you accordingly also increase the safety of your rescue team and save important resources that can be used for the search at multiple locations. FASTY is not only safe for the rescuers but also for the victims. Internal propellers and padding prevent injury to those being rescued. Rescuers using the water rescue robot can operate it either manually or remotely. FASTY helps to avoid risks and/or accidents during rescue work.
FASTY is easy to operate. The control with remote control is easy to learn and intuitive. After a few minutes, FASTY can be operated without any problems. No expensive training is required. FASTY is extremely robust and constructed of fiberglass and can be thrown into the water from a 20-meter-high place like a bridge or from boats. This is especially critical if you do not have direct access to water. The FASTY will bring your victim to a place where you have safe access to the injured person.
Normal and ordinary lifebuoys require you to approach the casualties with your boat. Lifebuoys must be thrown correctly and with pinpoint accuracy and appropriate distance in order to actually help drowning victims. The entire process, from locating to actual rescue, can take much more time than is actually available for the rescue. With FASTY, your boat does not have to approach the victim, only the remotely operated rescue vehicle. And exactly this circumstance saves a lot of time. With a FASTY you have the possibility to rescue up to 2 people at once. With a long deployment time of up to 60 minutes, you can perform several missions in a row or transport rescue equipment to the victims.
Due to its design with 2 powerful drives, the FASTY can also be used in bad or stormy weather without any problems. FASTY is used where you do not want to send your rescue team into the water at first. FASTY is equipped to withstand larger waves due to its larger dimensions and anti-tip construction. Avoiding tipping over in waves saves valuable rescue time. It can also be used in slow-flowing rivers or in floodwater. The drives of the FASTY are equipped and constructed in such a way that flotsam or seaweed can be removed in an easy and safe way, should a blockage occur.
The FASTY water rescue robot transmits important information for the rescue mission to the remote control. For example, the charge status of the battery or whether overheating is imminent. This allows you to cleanly control the progress of the rescue at any time. FASTY can be further upgraded. For example, cameras or additional lights can be carried, or an intercom system. If the electronics should fail or there is no connection to the remote control, FASTY can also be controlled manually.
At the scene of an incident, every second counts. For the victim as well as for the rescuers and also for the potential victims. The equipment that supports this rescue must therefore be reliable and quickly ready for use. The focus should be on the rescue and rescue tactics, not on the equipment setup. FASTY is designed so that it can be used quickly by any rescuer at the scene, even without explanation. FASTY can be operated without explanation and is therefore also suitable for use in hotels, beach resorts, and on yachts.
FASTY lifebuoys are designed for low operating costs. On the one hand, the FASTY offers a very high mechanical quality combined with a very long service life even in tough use. It is made of materials as that have been successfully used in sea rescue for years. The availability of FASTY spare parts and corresponding service & warranty plans further reduce your operating costs. Components of the highest and tested quality are installed, such as state-of-the-art and reliable battery technology. So that rescuers do not experience any surprises when it counts.
FASTY is not only used to rescue drowning victims. FASTY is also happy to provide shuttle services for divers who have drifted from the boat. FASTY also delivers material to dive sites if you don’t want to take the big boat off the anchor. Even if your victim is unresponsive, the Fasty will bring your divers to the scene. So FASTY partly takes over tasks of a normal scooter, but this remote controlled
FASTY‘s mission spectrum ranges from minor accidents with few casualties to long-duration major rescue missions with many casualties to missions during natural disasters or missions in conditions where rescue equipment cannot operate safely.
The complexity of operations and the potential threats at the scene are increasing significantly today. It’s good to have a supporting assistant with you, who can cope with harsh conditions and greatly expands the range of possible operations. Last but not least, it works tirelessly and reliably even during long-duration missions. Overuse, fatigue, and exhaustion of your emergency personnel are dangerous and can be minimized with an appropriate rescue robot.
Lifeguards at Hotels & Beaches
We think a FASTY belongs in every beach resort or hotel with beach access. Why. Quite simply: At short distances, a Lifeguard is highly effective in rescuing. At medium distances the victim in the water already swimming takes away a lot of time. If the FASTY is ready to hand, the time to rescue is shortened enormously, because it swims much faster than any lifeguard. With the FASTY you can communicate with the victims and give instructions for their rescue. If two lifeguards are on the scene, one of them can bring the other to the victim with the FASTY.
Coastguards & Sea-Rescue-Units
Of course, the FASTY does not replace professional rescuers and their equipment for rescuing shipwrecked people in heavy seas. Nevertheless, it offers extended possibilities between the classic life ring and the ocean rescue boats. For example, when you have to deal with an accident or you cannot get close enough to the shipwreck in stormy seas without putting yourself in danger. Here the FASTY offers additional opportunities while you prepare the classic rescue operation.
On Yachts & Ships
You don’t just turn a yacht or ship around in a fast way, to rescue someone who has gone overboard. Such a maneuver takes time. Depending on the size of the ship even a lot of time. Depending on the distance from the victim, you may not be able to throw a life preserver over this distance. And if you have ever been in ice-cold water, you know that the victims can not swim long distances. Wouldn’t it be better to be able to cover these distances with a remote-controlled vehicle? Exactly for this reason a FASTY should be present on each ship, so we think…
A harbor is not a safe environment. At least not for people who are in the water. There is heavy ship traffic or even currents. Even rescuers are in danger when it comes to rescuing people from the water in port facilities. Ideally, one or more FASTY`s are available in port facilities. It is possible to launch them from the high harbor walls into the water and bring the victims to a safe place for rescue. FASTY is a useful aid not only in large cargo ports but also in small marinas. We find FASTY increases the safety in a harbor facility from large to small…
Firedepartment & Technical-Rescue-Services
Depending on the country, emergency scenarios at lakes or rivers are part of the tasks of the police, ambulance, fire department, or even the technical relief organizations. A FASTY, if not permanently installed, but carried on the vehicles, can massively expand the range of operations. In essence, it is a matter of rescuing the victim from the water. Possibly this succeeds already in the time until the water rescue forces arrive and without the first rescuers must go into dangers that they cannot estimate completely. Often it is also a matter of material logistic missions or reconnaissance missions.
Civil-Defense & Disaster-Control
Of course, the FASTY reaches its limits in fast-flowing waters above 15 km/h. Nevertheless, FASTY is of great help for example in flood areas. With FASTY it is possible to bring the victims to the rescue boat faster than they could still do it under their own power. Floods and raging rivers are among the places where rescue equipment is extremely stressed and can quickly become ineffective due to the high volume of floating water. Maren FASTY is made of fiberglass and can withstand heavy use. Its water inlets are built to be easily cleaned should they become dirty. The FASTY can be repaired in a simple way.
