How We Can Support Your First Responders With Drones

When you receive a call for non-life threatening emergency services at a residence or office our Ohio Drone ‘COVID-19 Response Unit’ arrives on site prior to your paramedics, firefighters, or police to conduct initial temp evals on relevant drone accessible persons; deliver PPE to if determined necessary, and notify enroute units if COVID-19 conditions are detected onsite.

Due to the increased volume of emergency calls your local fire departments regular patrols may be overwhelmed leaving these otherwise vacant buildings and nearby homes vulnerable. Our local drone pilots perform these patrols for you by flying the sectors you identify as at risk,. Simultaneously live-streaming to your team and ready to notify you for any emergency conditions.

Frequently asked questions

Why should my department / company / organization use drone services?

Due the rapid spread of the novel virus COVID-19 many states are issuing shelter-in-place social distancing orders or stay-at-home orders. While these orders are immensely critical to slow the spread of the virus they have also impacted businesses and community services as many are not structured for long-term remote operations. This has resulted in service delays, capacity issues, and more. Drone services provide a way for businesses that require field operating teams to maintain service and operations while also protecting their human capital from exposure to the potentially fatal virus.

What if my department doesn't have a budget for these services?

Thanks to state and federal relief efforts critical public services are able to apply for relief assistance funding during this global health crises. For more information on these programs and how to apply for these funds please refer to your state networks or any of the following resources:

How much is a fully equipped mission?

Estimates vary based on equipment needed, how long the mission takes, and if there are any travel costs associated. Generally speaking for a mission within 50 miles of a licensed and equipped response team you are looking at a mission fee of $350, plus the total team hourly rate of $795 (this includes FAA licensed UAS pilots, Data Analyzers, and Asset Managers), plus a charge for any additional custom equipment/sensor needs your mission may require. Specialty Sensor missions include the Wireless Bridge and up to 3 sensors shown above, there may be an additional fee and/or equipment cost to accommodate more than 3 sensors or other advanced detectors not listed above.
