DJI y EENA (European Association of Emergency Numbers) have just announced today a collaboration agreement where they will seek to integrate the use of drones in rescue missions. For this, it is expected that, during the next year, all kinds of rescue tasks carried out can be studied much better and thus understand how aerial technology can bring much greater value to emergency services in different scenarios, environments and conditions.
EENA is an association that was established in 1999 and is based in Brussels. Is non Governmental Organization is the platform where all emergency services, public authorities, researchers, associations and solution providers from the entire European community meet in order to improve the response to any type of emergency in accordance with the demands that the citizens of community.
DJI partners with EENA to make drones a valuable asset in emergency situations.
As communicated by DJI, the agreement reached with EENA will allow the establishment of teams made up of carefully selected pilots across Europe endowed, in turn, with the latest and most technological equipment created by DJI such as the Phantom and Inspire while it will also bet on the use of the M100 platform and its best thermal imaging system thanks to the use of the Zenmuse XT camera. .
Throughout the program, selected teams they will receive a series of courses and practices that will train them to give support and guidance to rescue teams on any type of terrain. At the moment the first two test sites for this project will be the Greater Copenhagen Fire Department in Denmark and the Donegal Mountain Rescue Team, located in Ireland.
As he commented Romeo durscher, DJI Director of Education:
With this partnership, we hope to demonstrate the power of aerial systems in rescue missions. Drones are transforming the way rescue and civil protection missions work by not only helping commanders make much faster and smarter decisions, but also by providing services that are often the first to respond to any situation. emergency, more detailed information from an aerial perspective. The technology is easy to deploy and can be used in dangerous situations without risking the lives of the pilots. This ultimately saves lives.
For its part, Tony o'brien, Deputy Executive Director of EENA:
EENA is uniquely positioned to observe how aerial technology has been implemented to support rescue services. With this program, we seek to better understand how challenges in terms of logistics and data analysis and integration can be overcome to fully achieve the benefits of drones in emergency and humanitarian crisis situations.
