If you’re part of a public safety agency considering a drone program, read this article by faculty at leading aeronautical university Embry-Riddle, to evaluate whether or not your agency is ready for an sUAS Unit.
“A public safety agency’s sUAS unit can reduce the risk to its first responders and increase efficiency during an emergency response or recovery effort,” said Dr. Joe Cerreta, an assistant professor at Embry-Riddle. “These tools can support firefighting, search and rescue, accident reconstruction, damage assessment, and more.”
Offering key considerations, training options and application examples, the article is an introduction to Embry-Riddle’s sUAS Fundamentals for Public Safety course. Embry-Riddle also offers an sUAS for Public Safety certificate.
