Drone Blue Light Services

Drone solutions for the frontline

Blue Light Services – Police, Fire and Search & Rescue (SAR)

The specialist work we do within Blue Light 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. 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. Monitoring in real-time and collecting accurate data, you can make smarter decisions faster.

In a constantly changing modern environment – built up areas, increased traffic and sprawling commercial estates – effective drone use makes a difference. It can help you to plan better, reduce risk and keep costs low without compromising the safety of your force or the public.

What we offer

Whether you’re looking for consultancy on a specific aspect, or want a fully outsourced operation, our experts, with many years of experience working with emergency services, can work with you to produce the best solution. We identify key points in your processes and establish where drone technology would be most beneficial. Things can change in an instant when you’re dealing with real, fast-moving situations so we are also on-hand to offer you flexibility and advice should your drone requirements change.

Every service is different, varying across regions and counties so we always ensure that we don’t take a one-size fits all approach. It’s often a case of combining different services – our table below shows you what the benefits of that could be:
