Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

The Victoria Fire Department is looking to use Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for emergency response operations. UAVs can assist with damage assessments, providing immediate situational awareness, locate lost or trapped individuals, perform structural analysis of damaged infrastructure, deliver emergency supplies, detect heat and chemicals, and capture images from inaccessible places.

Below is some video footage from the UAV demonstration that took place in Centennial Square, following the ShakeOutBC earthquake drill in October 2016.
