Are you a drone expert? Can you make your drones dance? Can you program auto pilots via mind melds with the controllers?
ChesCo Search, our on the ground search team is looking for a person or perons to join our team and recurit/lead/build a team of drone experts to manage/build/pilot aerial drones and underwater drones to aid in the search for missing and lost persons.
You would be responsible to provide aerial images of search areas, provide recon, monitor high probability search areas/locations via drone. You need to be aware of, or willing to learn the parameters and legal requirements for safely flying drones in emergency situations, understand the use of NOTAM's and most important, how to keep eveyone happy.
You must be willing to respond on short notice, willing to work within the fire/police/rescue command structure, and be able and willing to work under potentially harsh conditions.
Previous fIre/rescue experience is not necessary but is welcomed.
This is a totally volunteer opportunity and more than likely will cost you $$$. Like most things worth doing right.
