Drone Deployed in Eastern Springfield, MO to Assist Fire Fighters with River Rescue

In late March of 2018, our team was requested by Logan Rogersville Fire Department to assist in the first water rescue of Spring just east of Springfield, MO.  We were able to launch our Yuneec H520 (UAV) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle equipped with a thermal camera.  This combination allows to see (and potentially assess) patients without putting fire fighters at risk in rushing water.  We believe this technology is a great tool and we continue to look for ways to engage with Police and Fire Departments across Missouri.
