Public-Safety Drones Specialist Launches Humanitarian Rescue Program

BRINC, a public-safety drone specialist based in Las Vegas, Nevada, announced the formation this week of the BRINC Global Rescue Network, a program committed to aiding in global humanitarian efforts. The network includes 24 public-safety professionals, military veterans and current and former drone racing league professionals. The team has been deployed to over 55 countries.

BRINC has aided war victims in Ukraine and disaster victims during the Champlain Towers collapse in Florida. Those experiences led BRINC to establish this program for drone rescues, creating a formal system for donating the use of its equipment, staffing and expertise to first responders and government agencies during a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis. This program will reduce the response time for rescues and also aid in faster deployment of drones where and when they are needed most.

This BRINC network will be used for emergency response, personnel recovery, route clearance, downed utilities inspection, rescue in GPS-denied and subterranean environments, reconnaissance of debilitated or structurally unsound buildings, search and rescue, and HAZMAT missions.
