Virginia’s Fairfax County has announced that it is developing a comprehensive Public Safety UAS program, which is designed to support a number of government mission types including, but not limited to, search and rescue operations, flooding assessments, and wildlife estimation.
 
Fairfax County is interested in getting feedback from its residents about the program, so during the month of January, it will host six public information meetings throughout Fairfax County.

During each meeting, there will be a static display of UAS, followed by a presentation that outlines the program.

Once the presentation is complete, residents will have the chance to pose their questions to representatives of the Office of Emergency Management, County Attorney’s Office, Police and Fire and Rescue Department.

The dates and locations for the six public information meetings can be found here.

More information about the UAS program itself can be found here.
