When seconds count, the need to pinpoint your cadre, your patients, and your equipment is obvious.
With the addition of the new lighted system the FAST Board becomes a beacon for rescuers engaged in "Saving Our Own, FAST."
This fully integrated system features internally mounted white LED lighting and a rechargeable battery pack which provides approximately 1.5 hours of illumination.
The FAST Board
- Equipped with Kevlar® lashing, rescue rated hardware, horizontal bridle bags & straps, ARS Multi-Loop Drag Strap, AWOGS decal package, haul line bag with 75’ Escape Tech Haul Line (knotted every 16”),

The FAST Rescue Board is the ultimate rescue platform designed for maximum versatility and ease of use. Originally designed for Rapid Intervention in firefighter rescue, this system also excels in the fields of Confined Space, Hazardous Materials, Active Shooter Response, and all other areas of patient packaging, extrication, and transport.
Constructed with industry standard webbing and hardware, the innovative rapid packaging features will have your patient packaged and moving in seconds.
In the past, the mindset was to adapt rope rescue into emergence evacuation. FRS is taking the opposite approach, they are taking emergency evacuation and integrating it into rope rescue.
FRS 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, FRS has continued to refine the FAST Board to included uses in situations such as:
- Ice rescue
- Water rescue
- Confined space rescue
- Mass casualty
- Active shooter scenarios
