LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, today unveiled a new Disaster Relief Program to support first responders in the United States with access to DJI’s industry-leading drone technology, for response and recovery efforts during and after major disasters such as wildfires, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes and local emergencies.

Drones are a critical aerial technology that has been proven to help search, rescue and recovery teams find victims faster, while also helping to keep them from harm’s way. Drones have been widely used to spot people in distress, to inspect infrastructure such as roads, bridges and power lines, and to assess damage and create high-resolution maps after recent disasters such as hurricanes Florence, Irma and Harvey as well as California wildfires, including the Camp Fire in Paradise and the Tubbs Fire in Santa Rosa.
