3 Ways Drones are Being Used in Emergency Response

Those of you who have read my previous posts know that drones are impacting emergency response through mapping and inspection. As a drone business owner, I'm excited to share 3 remarkable ways in which drones are transforming emergency response and disaster management:

✅ Damage Assessment 🌊: Drones play a crucial role in flood management. Pre-flood, they can be used to assess flood direction, identify at-risk buildings, and chart evacuation routes. Post-flood, they can aid in rescue operations and assess damage as well. 

In 2016, I flew the Ellicott City main street after a devastating flood, we were able to survey the damage to the city in ways that previously might not have been possible.

✅ Mapping🏚️: In the aftermath of an earthquake, drones are invaluable. They scout inaccessible routes, locate collapsed structures, and guide rescue teams to priority areas. Saving lives hinges on swift action, and drones make it possible. 

✅Search and Rescue 🆘: Drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras excel in finding missing persons in challenging terrains. Whether it's earthquake rubble or floodwaters, they maximize survival chances while being cost-effective and safe. 

What’s most important is that everyday drone service providers are finding new and improved ways of assisting emergency responders everywhere. 
As drone business owners, we must continue exploring new possibilities and innovations, enabling drones to play an even more vital role in saving lives and aiding disaster recovery.
