AFRS was requested to assist local agencies with a situation.
While reviewing the legalities for the flight, the AFRS pilot quickly identified a concern regarding the safety of national airspace and took the proactive steps to address these concerns should the emergency scene expand it's current boundaries.
After a few quick steps AFRS was able to ensure the safety of national airspace while still providing a rapid response time to the requesting agency. 03:33 - Dispatched
03:43 - Coordinated safe flight operations with other agencies and notified the requestor of AFRS that we were good to fly and provided arrival ETA.
03:57 - On scene and speaking with OIC.
04:00 - In the air and working the scene.
This is a prime example of how AFRS benefits organizations that required emergency drone services. Our background in emergency management and drones enables us to rapidly provide safe and reliable emergency services.
