ALLGUARD / Safety Drone Service


88,400 rescues occurred in 2017 in addition to 524 fatalities. With as much innovation that is happening such statistics should not be an issue in our society. The ALLGUARD drone can help lower these numbers to help lifeguards provide a safer beach environment for all to enjoy. The drone uses a thermal 360 camera to spot emergencies and react quickly to prevent any further injury. As the drone takes the patron to surface it alerts lifeguards of the trouble and acts as a buoy to float on until help arrives.
