Build and train Fire Rescue & EMS Units

Our volunteers will build for free and train rescue teams on UAV.  Training modules includes disaster search & rescue, sinkhole inspections, fire command & tactical deployment.  There is no cost to this service.  What we usually do is demo, build the UAV units based on your needs, deliver and train the trainers.  See Build A Drone projects.

Search & Rescue Services

Searches and rescues are provided by volunteers and sponsored by corporations and conducted along with other SAR organizations.  There is no cost when volunteers offer their services. Since 2007, with the exception of recreational flights, we have to ask the FAA for a certificate of authorization (COA) with good reasons for emergency flights out of sight.  All law enforcement agencies can request for COA and we can assist in processing the request.

Forest, wooded areas and desert.
We assist in missing persons searches and support ground search teams, providing the GPS coordinates of any point of interests.

Urban Search & Rescue
Urban search-and-rescue is considered a "multi-hazard" discipline, as it may be needed for a variety of emergencies or disasters, including earthquakes, sinkholes, hurricanes, storms and tornadoes, floods, dam failures, technological accidents, terrorist activities, and hazardous materials releases.

How it works:
Alerts are broadcast to our list of volunteers.  A SAR volunteer will evaluate each request and make the necessary arrangements with authorities for the mission.

The requester will be the Point of Contact (POC). The POC and alternate POC you nominate will meet with the mission planner to discuss the details.  Initial way points will be determined on maps and dispatch to the volunteer pilots. The pilots will attend a mission brief. Each mission flown will usually be coordinated with a ground search team on site.  All necessary COA will be completed before the missions.
