Disaster Zone Podcast: Media’s Use of Drones

What are the rules that they operate by?

Everyone is trying to incorporate drones into their operations. This of course includes the television media outlets. See the most recent Disaster Zone podcast: “Media’s Use of Drones.” You will find out what their protocols are for working with first responders in the field.

Here’s more of what is covered in the podcast:

“One segment of our community that is using drones more and more includes the television media. This podcast is an interview with Greg Thies, News Operations Manager at King Television in Seattle, a NBC affiliate. In this podcast we learn about what the safety and operational protocols are in use to provide the safe operation of drones by the media. There is also information on how they approach working with first responders when they arrive on a disaster site. The working relationship between media and the broader emergency management community can always be improved by communicating about what each organization is looking to achieve.”
Eric Holdeman is a nationally known emergency manager. He has worked in emergency management at the federal, state and local government levels. Today he serves as the Director, Center for Regional Disaster Resilience (CRDR), which is part of the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER). The focus for his work there is engaging the public and private sectors to work collaboratively on issues of common interest, regionally and cross jurisdictionally.
