FOCUS Emergency response


can also help guide emergency responders to and from the scene using the quickest routes possible. UAV technology is able also to benefit emergency services that are handling natural disasters, given that those situations require fast acting collaborative measures. Flooding and nuclear or chemical accidents


are situations in which the use of drone technology could be vital in measuring radiation, tracking the spread of harmful chemicals or gases and identifying people who are trapped in the surrounding areas. In these extreme circumstances where the health and safety of people responding to the incident and of those caught up in the disaster is of paramount importance, the aerial view from the drone can highlight areas in need of immediate aid and enable services to identify passable escape routes.


Major events


FRSs, in collaboration with other emergency services and state organisations, are crucial to ensuring security and safety at large events where gatherings of large numbers of people present risks. From a crowd management perspective,


UAV technology can prove useful for highlighting pathways with capacity and routes

that are becoming problematic where the flow of people needs to be monitored and crowds directed accordingly. In the event of a major incident, the drone fulfils an essential role by directing first responders to any incidents using a real time feed of the surrounding area and crowd movements. For medical emergencies, the time saving that this data provides can make a life or death difference to the person requiring medical attention. In addition, UAV technology can be a


vital tool during a marauding terrorist attack. The thermal camera and agile nature of a drone can track the assailant through a crowd, identify the routes to and from the scene and provide a perspective on the nearby crowds that need to be managed towards safety. In collaboration with the police and other


responding organisations, the aerial viewpoint can identify routes and risks that are not clearly visible on the ground, and allow the services to plan accordingly.


Extreme environments


A major benefit to the FRSs of using UAV technology to relay live video is that the drone can withstand extreme environments that could pose a risk to FRS personnel.
