Drones to the rescue: How pilotless aircraft are saving lives

EENA - Take a look at the coverage of the EENA/DJI partnership by France 24


A few weeks ago, the EENA / DJI testing programme for drones in emergencies took us to Copenhagen, one of the project's four pilot sites, to analyse how drones can help in emergency scenarios. France 24 joined us on-site to cover our experience.

What is the EENA / DJI testing programme?

The EENA/DJI partnership was launched to understand and evaluate the use of drones in civil protection/first responder scenarios in a number of pilot sites in Europe.

The main objective is to learn how such technology can assist our Fire and Rescue Services, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Police Services, Coastguards and Humanitarian organizations in different scenarios and in different environments.
