Drone by Drone has been interviewed by the Cadena COPE radio in his program 'La Noche de COPE' with Beatriz Pérez Otín. The interview has focused on the use of drones on the beaches as a measure of immediate assistance to bathers in distress.
The program makes a review throughout the history of first aid, from the past to the future. Present and Future of which the RESQ system is part, the system of immediate assistance through drones on beaches and coastal coastline, designed by the drone operating company of Bilbao.
The RESQ system, used during the last year in tests and simulations along the Basque coast, is ready to be implanted in any beach of our coast, to offer a higher quality service to the lifeguard services. The drone as a complementary tool to the most traditional systems of first aid, must be taken into account to guarantee a sustainable and safer future for bathers and users of the coastal strip.
The National Drowning Report carried out by the Spanish Salvation Federation shows worrisome figures: the most vulnerable groups are the elderly and children who come to our coast. The RESQ tool, with the possibility of personalizing the bracelets with data of belonging to these groups, can complement the measures of surveillance and early attention.
