Public safety agencies across the world are turning to drones to give them aerial intelligence so they can better protect and serve their communities.
From search & rescue to law enforcement, to firefighting and hazmat response, drones give first responders invaluable aerial insight, enabling quicker, safer, and better decisions to be made.
DJI is pleased to announce that through September, we will be hosting a series of webinars together with our partners, where we explore best practices and workflows for drone operations in public safety.
Tune in to learn from leading public safety drone experts about the following topics:

A major opportunity for Public Safety professionals lies in the re-thinking of the concept of situational awareness. Gaining a top-down or 3D view is key to fully comprehending a given area. Integrating GIS into emergency response has improved mission planning, responding, and analysis even in the most challenging disasters.
In this webinar, you will learn why Public Safety professionals are adopting mapping and modeling into their workflows, to help with their response. We will walk you through how you can use DJI Pilot and DJI Terra to produce quick and reliable maps to help with emergency response.
