<ul><li> 1. RESCUE HERO Speed Is Everything In Water Rescues </li></ul> <p> 2. RESCUE HERO Asaps aim is to help lifeguards save more lives in waters internationally, in a sustainable way. When a person starts drowning and taking on water, rescuers have around 90 seconds before brain damage can begin to set in and the person looses consciousness. Speed is everything in water rescues. Asap Rescue Hero is a small one-person launch, electric motorized craft. It is a first response, quick launch craft - capable of ducking through surf, and lightweight enough to tuck under your arm and run with. Designed specifically for rescue and patrol for beach lifeguards. One person can pick up the craft and jump onto it, in water - significantly faster than launching a jet ski from a trailer. 3. These water crafts are electric powered and can be charged with renewable energy sources. Electric power also means they have zero impact on the environment during use - zero emissions and noise pollution. Asap has developed this water craft to a working prototype level and tested it with over a hundred of the best lifeguards, along the east coast of Australia, with the backing of Virgin. Based on this testing and feedback they are now developing the product to production level. 4. To learn more about this and other innovative solutions Go to OceanExchange(dot)Org The Founder, Ross Kemp, came up with the idea for the rescue product whilst training as a lifeguard. After visiting many lifeguard stations and testing existing equipment, he felt lifeguards are given very basic equipment for lifesaving responsibilities. Asap is looking for their business to be much more than water craft products, and will be looking at how we can help communities with lifesaving training, raising money for equipment and setting up new rescue stations globally. </p>
