Volunteer Emergency Drone Responder Organizations Join With Privately Owned Businesses To Make A Difference

Nationally, drones have made the news from movie making to burrito delivery and breaching the White House lawn. Recently drones are being used for a much more honorable purpose… Search and Rescue (SAR), and have been used successfully to find missing people and even pets. Volunteer Emergency Drone Responder organizations, such as Air Bears, and privately owned business owners willing to donate their time, such as Birds Eye Aerial Drones, are helping to make this a reality. Drones will soon be able to recognize which paths they have already searched, i.e in a large park with hundreds of miles of trails, as researchers work towards a self-taught machine via an artificial neural network, similar to the biological neural network in your brain.

A story both closer to home and endearing to all of our hearts, is the call Scott Painter received last year from a dog owner who had searched for two days to find his dog on his rather large property. To make matters worse, his dog had a medical condition, which required medicine to survive. The owner was understandably very worried about his 4-legged companion. After a team search of the property using their DJI Inspire, the story ends on a happy note, as Birds Eye Aerial Drones did their part to assist in the reuniting of this man and his ‘best friend’.

“To see the joy that this reunion brought was an incredibly fulfilling experience. I have been considering joining a volunteer emergency drone responder outfit ever since. Joining Air Bears is the first step in fulfilling that goal.” ~ Scott Painter.

Scott has been in the military and aviation community for 20+ years and has created a business around his passion of flying and technology. He has also been a Rotary member and volunteer tutor and coach. Joining Air Bears is just another step in his journey to do good in the pursuit of something he holds so dear.
