Recovery and Relief Help

Search and rescue worker

Floods, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, sink holes, building fires or collapses—when disaster strikes, minutes matter. Aerial drones are being deployed more and more to evaluate disaster-struck communities to aid in everything from search for survivors to determining the scope of the event to better plan relief efforts.

Drones now equipped with 3-D imaging and infrared capability are allowing rescue and recovery to happen more rapidly, empowering those providing relief to do their job more effectively. Drones also help:

  • Survivor or stranded search and rescue
  • Evaluate risk conditions and event stressors that could cause further damage
  • Direct relief workers and recovery efforts more strategically
  • Keep first responders, search and rescue and relief workers safe
  • More clearly communicate critical areas at risk
  • Coordinate multiple resource teams and agencies for relief efforts
  • Collect data and imagery for justifying state and federal relief funds
  • Provide time-lapse data to evaluate recovery progress
  • Train rescue workers for future events
