Droneresponders Public Safety Alliance announce public safety UAS partnership
The DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Alliance and the Commercial Drone Alliance, last week, announced a partnership to assist public safety UAS programs in implementing UAS technologies to yield lifesaving benefits. The partnership will increase dialogue and establish relations between the UAS industry and first responders who are embracing unmanned systems to help lifesaving missions and protect property. According to recent research from DRONERESPONDERS, a majority of public safety agencies are either already operating drones or working on implementing a UAS program.
“We are seeing incredible interest in using drones for public safety at the local, state, and federal levels,” said Lisa Ellman, Executive Director for the Commercial Drone Alliance. “Our partnership with DRONERESPONDERS – the world’s fastest growing non-profit program supporting public safety UAS – will serve to strengthen the ecosystem surrounding how first responders work with industry to deploy drones in the national airspace system.”
