Emergency response agencies across the globe are using drone technology as a tool for surveillance, firefighting, search and rescue, investigations, disaster response and other operational requirements. These tools enable public service agencies to efficiently gather intelligence data that aid in protecting and serving the public. Time is of the essence during emergencies, and drones can be deployed by first responders fast and cost-effectively.
Parachutes allow for safe flight over people and tethered-powered drone systems allow for unlimited flight time.

Fire departments: Fire departments deploy drones with FLIR sensors to gather actionable intelligence when fighting fires. Traditionally, incident commanders relied on verbal communications from crew, but now drone technology aids radio communications with visual intelligence such as thermal imaging for hotspots, enabling crew to strategically target the fire.
Law Enforcement: Law enforcement agencies are able to collect irrefutable court evidence using drone technology. Operators can collect data in a matter of minutes compared to hours and unobtrusively removing the human factor from the scene that could contaminate evidence. Integrated collision investigation deploy Phantom 4 RTK drone systems to accurately document and recreate accident scenes for evidence and further analysis.
Search and Rescue: The first 18 hours is critical to the survival of lost victims. Search and Rescue teams deploy drone technology to quickly search land plots that would traditionally take hours for rescuers to traverse. Thermal imaging sensors enable crew to spot heat signatures from humans, further enabling the ability of night searches that is dangerous for manned aircraft operations.
During disasters, crews can rapidly deploy drones into danger zones in order to spot humans that may be trapped. Giving rescue crews aerial intelligence information to provide prompt rescue missions post disaster, drones can be used to efficiently collect up-to-date data from the environment in order to effectively plot and plan rescue strategies.
