22 Drones Deployments or Assists Since 2005

Since 2005, when we had the first deployment of small UAS for a disaster (Hurricane Katrina),  we have had 22 drone deployments or assists in the US, Italy, and Japan to federally declared disasters or there equivalent. These are 10 hurricanes, 4 floods, 2 building collapses, 1 nuclear accident, 1 landslide, 1 tornado, 1 wildland fire, 1 earthquake, 1 volcanic eruption.  The 22 doesn’t count numerous times we’ve worked with Fort Bend County OEM on pre-disaster mitigation of flooding.
