New Joint Effort Boosts Drone Standards for Public Safety Officials

Two of the world?s leading safety-standards developers are joining forces to help the growing number of public safety professionals who want to use drones ? also known as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) ? to help protect and save lives.

Today, the National Fire Protection Association and ASTM International signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support a joint working group (JWG) of about two dozen top experts in public safety and drone technology.

This group, which first met Feb. 23, is working to create ?use-case scenarios? to help meet needs of law enforcement, search-and-rescue teams, emergency medical services personnel, and firefighters who want to use drones in various operations.
