The town of Sagunto has a problem that perhaps accuses precisely the fact that there are not too many tourists who travel to its lands and enjoy its excellent beaches. This problem literally has to do with the city is on the black list of drownings and to remedy this problem, there is nothing better than betting on one of the most innovative and interesting technologies of the moment, such as drones.

The idea that those responsible for this city have had goes through seize one of these units to carry out surveillance tasks, specifically with a prototype made of carbon fiber weighing about six kilograms that stands out for certain characteristics such as its speed and power, which allows it to fly and fight against quite strong gusts of wind.

The Sagunto Coast Guard will begin to use drones for their surveillance and first aid tasks

As the people responsible for starting this type of project have commented, to this day, personnel on a jet ski, it takes about two minutes to be able to go from the beach to the point in the middle of the sea where an accident has occurred. . With the help of this drone, it is expected to be able to give a first assistance during the first 40 seconds, something that can be vital to save a life.

According to statements by the main promoters of the project:

It has a thermal camera that allows us to visualize missing persons in the aquatic environment. This allows us to reduce time, something that can mean being able to save a life.

As a pilot, once I have talked to the lifeguards, they guide me and when I see the person I stand on top and drop a float on them.
