On September 29, 2022, Skydio launched an all-hands-on-deck effort to support first responders in the wake of Hurricane Ian. We recently spoke to two Skydio team members, Chris Mauser and Bryan King , who are on the ground and focused on supporting Florida public safety agencies. The two shared that “while the dust has settled from the storm itself, the hard work is just beginning.” Chris and Bryan conveyed the unique ways Skydio drones are being used to facilitate Florida’s recovery and reconstruction efforts. In addition to piloting support and training, the team has provided repairs and replenishments of Skydio drone equipment where needed. Paired with well-trained and strategic rescue operators, Skydio drones have helped to provide aerial intelligence that keeps both victims and rescuers safer.
