Drones for Emergency Response
Today’s show is about using drones for emergency and natural disaster situations. How can you, as a drone pilot ensure that maximum people can benefit from your services?
Our caller, Brad from Florida, wishes to volunteer his drone services for emergency and natural disaster situations. However, he is not sure how exactly he can go about doing this. How can Brad connect with the right authorities and ensure that maximum people benefit from his drone services?
We are glad that Brad is making efforts to go through the correct chain of command. Inexperienced drone pilots who show up uninvited often end up hindering relief efforts and doing more harm than good. In this show, we reveal how Brad can resort to content marketing and investigative work to meet his end goal. Thanks for the great question, Brad. Fly Safe!
