Event description

Description

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones, are becoming more and more common in the national airspace system (NAS), and their use in emergency response is becoming invaluable to the agencies that utilize them.


This 40-hour workshop will provide a framework for emergency responders, airspace managers, and UAS operators to examine the challenges associated with deploying UAS and to demonstrate the advantage that they offer in disaster response and recovery. The workshop will discuss the use of UAS in disaster response, recovery, preparedness, and mitigation, as well as the various types of UAS and the current statutes and rules that regulate them. Live demonstrations will be conducted to allow participants the opportunity to understand UAS safety and their value to responders and the civilian populations they protect. The workshop will include two full days of scenario-based immersion problem solving to provide participants with decision making opportunities to enhance their knowledge. Participants will be assigned to small groups to solve Hurricane Irma scenarios using UAS and their integration into the Incident Command Structure.


A registration questionnaire will collect information on each participant’s level of experience and knowledge in his/her area of expertise. This will enable the workshop planners to balance and optimize experience levels for each of the five table top exercise teams. This will provide each participant with an opportunity to

Contribute their expertise and experience
