Aeryon Labs will be running a webinar on Thursday 16th February 2017, in collaboration with the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service (LFRS), to demonstrate how a UAS program can enhance emergency fire and rescue services.

The LFRS UAS program became fully operational in September 2016, using the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS to respond to situations such as fires, floods, collapsed structures, wildfires and animal rescues. In just four months the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS had attended more than 70 incidents, including seven fatal road collisions, 29 missing persons, and 34 fire related incidents.

Attend this one-hour webinar session to hear from the team at LFRS as they describe:

  • How they started their UAS program
  • Their roles and perspectives from pilot to senior management
  • Their program and community
  • The applications for UAS in Emergency Response

Speakers (The LFRS Team):

  • Steve Darby – Northern Area Incident Intelligence Officer
  • Tim Murrell – Group Manager and International Search and Rescue Manager
  • Chris Rainford – Chief Pilot
