  2. 2. • Operates on battery power and is operated by remote control • After being dropped into the water from shore, a boat or pier, or helicopter.[2] Using an impeller motor to travel through water, it is able to reach victims much faster than a human lifeguard can by swimming, and it more compact and less expensive to maintain than manned watercraft. • It can also operate in weather and surf conditions that make other rescue attempts impractical. • Once it reaches the victims its foam core allows it to function as a floatation device for up to 4-6 people holding onto side ropes or handles.

  3. 3. In July, 2012 lifeguards made one of the first rescues using Emily, pulling a father and son to shore after they had been caught in a rip current. A new multi-day duration gasoline powered variant of EMILY for ocean based storm tracking and weather data collection has been developed under funding by NOAA.
