Within the last few years, drones have revolutionized different areas of public safety. Search and Rescue teams are using drones with infrared to help locate lost people, Lifeguards are dropping life preservers to struggling swimmers, and Law Enforcement Agencies and SWAT Teams have found benefits using drones for aerial views and crime scene documentation.

This workshop will focus on how drones can be utilized by HazMat teams. The workshop will feature experts working in developing drone technologies, as well as industry professionals, with the goal of answering some of the questions HazMat teams may have about how a drone can be an effective tool.
