Seeking out creative ways to enhance their services, Glendora Fire Company recently applied for a UAV/drone through NPS-DDP. After careful review and evaluation, the company was excited to receive the news that they had been chosen by NPS-DDP to be a recipient of a drone generously donated to the program by New Jersey American Water.
“New Jersey American Water utilizes drone technology to not only maintain our systems, but also keep our employees safe and out of harm’s way,” explained Chris Kahn, GIS Manager at New Jersey American Water. “When the opportunity to participate with NPS-DDP was presented to us, we were excited to take part. We are proud to support our first responders at Glendora Fire Company, who can utilize this type of lifesaving technology in the field.”
The mission of NPS-DDP was founded by Airborne Works with a focus to recruit others to help support our national public safety departments nationwide with UAV/UAS technology through voluntary donations, be it hardware, financial and/or media support from the private, corporate and community sectors.
Together we can help support those who give so much. The goal is to help put “eyes in the sky for every department need” ™.
