DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Summit to Unite Police, Fire, and Emergency Services Drone Operators at Commercial UAV Expo Americas 2019

LAS VEGAS – DRONERESPONDERS Public Safety Summit to Unite Police, Fire, and Emergency Services Drone Operators at Commercial UAV Expo Americas 2019

Remote pilots and UAS program thought-leaders from top public safety agencies across the U.S. will unite for the DRONEREPONDERS Public Safety Summit at Commercial UAV Expo Americas from October 28-30, 2019 at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Program content will combine traditional panel presentations with a full-day summit meeting and workshop for officials to address key issues facing drone operators and UAS program leaders across the public safety sector.

The content and summit will be hosted by DRONERESPONDERS the leading 501(c)3 non-profit program supporting public safety UAS research, program development, training, and operations, in partnership with Commercial UAV Expo Americas.

“We are excited to partner with Commercial UAV Expo Americas to host this incredible event for public safety UAS,” said Chief Charles Werner (ret.), Director of DRONERESPONERS. “In addition to traditional panel presentations, this year’s new summit event will allow first responders to interact with one another unlike ever before to help solve common issues all agencies are facing with UAS.”

Werner says the traditional one-size-fits-all format for public safety UAS conference programing is no longer sustainable as departments and their drone operators seek more specialized operational knowledge. He claims DRONERESPONDERS is uniquely positioned as a non-profit program to provide unbiased expertise, research, and assistance to help deliver UAS information that first responders need.

“We have representatives from over 500 agencies and counting who have joined the DRONERESPONDERS program because they need more precise information,” says Werner. “We are looking forward to bringing these members to Las Vegas for what will surely be a very memorable event.”

“We are delighted to expand our program offerings to the public safety sector by partnering with DRONERESPONDERS,” said Lisa Murray, Group Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of Commercial UAV Expo Americas. “As the leading commercial UAS event in North America, we strive to provide the highest quality content to our attendees. DRONERESPONDERS has over 5,000 contacts in public safety hungry for information and actionable insights. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend live demonstrations, see forensic applications, learn from the leaders during two full days of programming, and network with each other. In addition, Commercial UAV Expo Americas has the largest commercial drone exhibit floor in the industry displaying best-in-class solutions from airframes to software, sensors, drones as a service and more. It’s a one-stop show loaded with everything public safety professionals need to get started or advance their drone programs.”
