The Airborne International Response Team (AIRT) and DRONERESPONDERS made an announcement that could save lives all over the world. Emergency response remote pilots, their equipment, and public safety UAS programs will be listed together in a geo-referenced database to enable disaster management teams to find the resources they need.
By leveraging Esri’s long-standing expertise for making georeferenced data digestible, impactful, and accessible, AIRT and DRONERESPONDERS will help Public Safety and Emergency Response Agencies build a clearer picture of who is out there, enabling these programs to grow and become better at what they do—save lives.
The organization will soon deploy Esri ArcGIS Dashboards and geo-referenced StoryMaps that illustrate the quantity and location of registered emergency drone assets around the world. As more and more teams and remote emergency pilots will sign in and register to the system, the more valuable this resource will become for everyone—it is truly a global effort that DRONERESPONDERS and AIRT encourage everyone to become a part of.
