Brinc and Skyfire Partner to Help Agencies Develop Drone Programs

Skyfire’s public safety unmanned aerial systems (UAS) expertise and support for law enforcement organizations across all 50 states will play a crucial role in supporting Brinc’s mission to reduce emergency response times and save lives.

Brinc and Skyfire Consulting have partnered to assist law enforcement agencies in obtaining the necessary waivers and clearance to launch drone programs, including FAA Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA) approval, as well as provide training for drone programs.

 Drone technology can supplement and enhance first responder capabilities in the United States. These programs stand to provide several improvements to police and EMS operations, including:

* Overall reduction in 911 call response times, on average, less than 70 seconds for a drone to arrive on scene from when the call was placed

* Significantly improved call out clearing capabilities, with 25% of 911 calls cleared solely with a dron

* Prioritize call outs to reduce the overall human response time to emergencies in half and to reduce the time for first responder to arrive on scene by 54%
