Your Emergency Scene
Regardless if your emergency scene is a tornado, infrastructure emergency, or an active fire... Our firefighter emergency robotic operators are here to service the needs of your agency or municipality.
We currently stage equipment and firefighter pilots in Clinton and Highland Counties of Ohio.
This allows us to serve the needs of communities within a 30 minute radius of our zone. This includes our base counties as well as portions of: Adams, Brown, Clermont, Fayette, Greene, Pike, Ross, and Warren counties and other regions.
If you would like for AFRS to expand coverage into your Ohio community, please call us at 614-642-4900 (Option 2 for administration) to speak to our leadership team.
We plan each coverage zone to be a 30 minute maximum drive time. This allows us to service over 553,000 individuals.
It should be noted that some circumstances can delay or prevent flights as we must adhere to all FAA rules and laws regarding the operation of robotic aircraft.
Below you will find a detailed list of communities that each of our coverage zones serve.
