While AFRS primarily focuses on emergency response, we support our community with public outreach programs that include dog rescue within our coverage areas.

Our firefighter drone pilots utilize their skills and public safety grade drones to assist your family find your lost loved one.

We do this because it keeps our search and rescue skills fresh and it helps our community realize the power of professional emergency grade equipment and services.

If you are in our coverage area and you require our services, please phone 614-642-4900 and select option 2 to ring the on call administrator.    If we have a unit available, we will consider your request.   We do NOT charge for community outreach.

Below are some of our success stories:


Farmers and ranchers are integral components of our national infrastructure, crucial for ensuring food safety and production. As part of our public outreach efforts, we provide services including:

  • Livestock temperature scans

  • 2D/3D Mapping helps locating runoff and erosion concerns

  • Field obstacle detection helps avoid equipment damage


Recognizing the significance of preparing the next generation of fire pilots, we are delighted to arrange school presentations. These sessions offer insights into the life of a fire pilot, as well as the essential training and licensing prerequisites.

Meet & Greets

We are pleased to organize meet-and-greet events at various businesses and gatherings. These occasions provide the public with a fantastic opportunity to witness our impressive safety technology in action and get to know the individuals behind the drone operations.

Firefighter PTSD

Our team members bring invaluable firsthand experience from their roles as first responders on the front lines. In cases where a firefighter needs to take a step back due to PTSD, we provide training to enable them to contribute to AFRS.

This empowers certified firefighters to continue serving their community, albeit from a remote role, as opposed to front-line interactions with emergency scenes.
