GLENDORA FIRE COMPANY TO RECEIVE DRONE DONATION
Posted: Nov 16, 2018 10:30 AM EDT
On December 7th. 2018 at 1:00 pm the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program
and New Jersey American Water will be at the Glendora fire station to present this
new life saving technology to the fire company.
Airborne Works founded and introduced a drone donation program whereby public
safety departments nationwide may apply to receive UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)
at no cost. Requests can be made through www.nps-ddp.org
The availability of UAV / UAS technology can often mean the difference between life
and death, measured in seconds and minutes in emergency situations. With the high
cost of this technology, many public safety departments across the country cannot
afford to purchase the equipment and therefore go without. Airborne Works hopes to
alleviate this challenge and help to put “eyes in the sky for every department in
The Glendora Volunteer Fire Company is always looking for new ways to provide our
residents and surrounding communities with exceptional service.
We invite you to attend this event and see the capabilities of this new technology. It
will be held at the Glendora Fire Station Located @ 22 Eighth Avenue, Glendora NJ
08029, starting @1:00pm followed by a demonstration. On hand will be
representatives from New Jersey American Water, Airborne Works and firefighters
from the fire company.
