Last weekend, along with NIAS, we participated in a Bi-State, Multi-Agency Evacuation Drill that was conducted in @tahoenorth. More than 17 separate first responder agencies participated in the drill. Some of the agencies include: @northlaketahoefire, @washoesheriff, Nevada Division of Forestry, @nevadahighwaypatrol, @californiahighwaypatrol, @northtahoefire, @calfire, @placer_sheriff, @americanredcross, IVGID Public Works and more!

Today we’re collaborating in the Bi-State Evacuation Drill! We’re working with @northtahoefire, @northlaketahoefire, @placercounty, @washoesheriff, and IVGID Public Works in a mock situation where drones and emergency aircraft will be working together to save a life. #droneamerica
We're providing emergency services with real-time intelligence technology during disasters like fire and flood.
This is the first year the technology will be utilized to help with mapping and finding potential victims. Our technology can provides information that prediction models cannot. #droneamerica
