EMILY, which stands for EMergency Integrated Lifesaving lanYard, is a robotic jet propulsion watercraft which can be rapidly deployed to a person in distress in the waters around Bayonne.

In a Facebook post Chief Weaver stated; “The Bayonne Fire Department, with the support of the Davis Administration and City Council, is once again on the forefront of deploying technology to make our community safer. Bayonne Fire is the first public safety agency in New Jersey to obtain this device and training our members will begin immediately, so EMILY can be at the ready to help save lives.”
