EENA launches Working Group on Drones open to all interested parties!


The topic of Drones being used by the emergency services is being described as “transformative”.

Their potential use is being evaluated by many emergency services in scenarios such as assessing buildings after/during an emergency, assisting with the management of large scale events, large fires, transporting AEDs to assist with cardiac arrest, and so on. Nevertheless, there are several challenges which should not be underestimated.

EENA covered this topic at our recent Conference and in response to this, as well as the overall interest in the topic, EENA is launching a Working Group on Drones.

The Working Group is open to all EENA Members and interested parties, and it is going to cover technical, legal and operational aspects of using drones in emergency situations.

Are you interested in participating?

You can simply send an email with your organisation information and contact details to Tony O'Brien at tob@eena.org.

The Working Group’s kick-off webinar is on Friday 19th June @ 14.30 CEST (Brussels time).
