Emergency Management - Drone Use During an Event

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a retired NYS Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services GIS technician. As a member of the NYS Type II All Hazards Incident Management Team, my original job was GIS specialist. I have recently started a All Hazards Situation Unit Leader task book. Field data/intelligence collection is a primary job duty. Drones have not been used by our team but  the team is looking to include this technology in the future.

Make sure you guys apply for the FAA public service certificate of authorization if this a public entity. Also it's not a bad idea for any pilots to get an FAA Part 107certificate. 

The guys at Skyfire Consulting can help out with any questions!  They have given me some great places.  Also you can contact the FAA. Our local guy over UAS operations with the FAA was very helpful. 

Good luck!  And let us know how it goes.
