Organisers of The Emergency Services Show have announced two new features at this year’s event: the SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone, sponsored by SOARIZON®️ by Thales. The new seminar and exhibition zone are designed to foster drone development for emergency services through research and discussion.
The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar and a SkyBound Rescuer Drone Zone will help emergency services and public safety professionals to make the best tactical and strategic use of drone technology. Attendees are expected to come from every part of the global emergency services community including fire, lowland, mountain, cave and coastal SAR; lifeboats and flood rescue units. “Drones have a valuable role to play in supporting and enhancing the work of all our emergency services,” added ESS event director David Brown. “The addition of the Drone Dome will be a brilliant showcase to encourage enhanced operational efficiency and effectiveness alongside other emerging technologies at the show such as the latest vehicles, communications, medical and firefighting equipment, protective clothing, training technology and much more.”
Taking place in a dedicated “drone dome”, the SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar Day on 19th September will open with a thought-provoking presentation on Public Safety Drones by internationally renowned keynote speaker, Charles Werner; a pioneer of drones in public safety across the USA. This will be followed by five research-driven presentations covering the latest research in the field of drones for public safety in the UK and internationally.
Gemma Alcock, founder and CEO of Skybound Rescuer. “Drones are saving lives faster, safer, and cheaper than ever before. But drones are still far from fulfilling their full potential, the best is yet to come.”
