Drones for Emergency Services

The specialist work we do within emergency services reflects our depth of experience. We know what you’re up against every day and we can implement drone solutions that help you address those challenges.

Drone technology is rapidly changing. Improvements are providing increased flight duration, greater resilience, higher quality sensors and better weather capabilities, meaning the options when selecting UAV’s becomes so much wider. Emergency services are increasingly seeing the real benefit and value for money from the investment in this drone technology.

Drones can be deployed directly to site – whether you’re surveying an urban fire before sending your force in, mapping crowd control or using heat sensors in difficult mountain weather conditions. By monitoring in real-time and collecting accurate data, you can make smarter decisions faster. Similarly, in constantly changing environments – built up areas, increased traffic and sprawling commercial estates – effective drone use makes all the difference. Incident Commanders can gain greater situational awareness and better identify where resources need to be deployed. Drone use affords better planning, reduces risk and can help keep costs low without compromising the safety of your force or the public.

Consortiq have operational Fire, Police and SAR personnel, in both our instructor and management teams - all with operational UAV experience. This unique insight means that Consortiq understands the operational needs of the emergency services and the requirements, from platforms and system managements, to pilot training.
