On June 28th, 2020, NAPSG Foundation hosted the virtual PrepTech Talk titled “Applying Drones & Imagery for Disaster Management.” This training was part 1 of a 2-part virtual series on how drones and imagery are transforming the landscape of disaster response and providing data to inform community resiliency efforts.

Seminar Objectives

The Response Community is embracing and rapidly procuring drone/UAS technology to support emergency response across all public safety disciplines. The decreasing cost and growing acceptance of drones/UAS and imagery technology by both the public and government leaders has further fueled this growth. In Part 1 of this seminar series, you will:

  • Learn how drones have been used in recent disasters to improve first responder safety and operational effectiveness, including increased near real-time situational awareness.
  • Learn from industry leaders on the keys to developing a successful public safety drone/UAS program in your agency.
  • Gain an understanding of how your agency can leverage the Civil Air Patrol and their drone capacity during a disaster. 

Part 2 of the series “Applying Drones and Imagery for Resiliency” (scheduled for October 2020) will focus on how drones/UAS programs are improving resiliency efforts across the community.
