Mobile Surveillance for Emergency First Responders

Mobile Surveillance serves as an effective and powerful tool for emergency first responders in a crisis situation.

By having secure video streaming from the emergency scene, situations can be viewed in real-time by the heads of the department remotely in the command center. In this way the public safety can be improved drastically. Getting drones up in the air in high-risk wild fire areas, helps to decrease helicopter costs and - when equipped with thermal camera's - enables you to detect wild fires earlier.

The future of technology for civil emergency services

When there is limited funding available for civil emergencies, this often means decreased efficiency and safety for the team. A solution could be found in using live-streaming drones. This cheap alternative to sending in a helicopter increases surveillance possibilities. Drones provide an increased periphery of vision in the sky with instantaneous broadcasting of footage to the control centre. Drone activity could cover many roles in outdoor events. From monitoring large environmental disasters such as flooding, through to finding or identifying pirates or refugee vessels.

Training emergency services through live broadcasting

Continuous improvement and training are of paramount importance in the emergency services, where human error could result in fatalities. Mobile live broadcasting can give on-the-job training and support to both new recruits and on-going career development in the frontline of the emergency services. The live, encrypted broadcasting allows the remote trainer(s) to advise and provide training and guidance in the field.

Emergency services joint drone cooperation

A thermal image camera with broadcasting capabilities can be mounted on a fire fighting drone. This drastically improve both effectiveness of putting out the fire and the safety of the fire crew, as the drone can be used to locate fires and fire hotspots within large tower or complex buildings. Creating an agreement between emergency services to cooperate on drone usage, can help to improve effectiveness of all services.

Trying to beat wild fires with the help of drone technology

Trying to beat wild fires with the help of drone technology

Wild fires are pushing emergency services to the maximum of their capabilities. The ease at which a wild fire can start and then rage out-of-control with wind being a major factor, makes them difficult to contain and ultimately extinguish. What can drone technology do to help? For example, live streaming from a drone provides an immediate real-time view of what is going on.
