Hello Smart Firefighting Community!
It's time to think of drones as another tool in the toolbox that can help first responders do their jobs more efficiently...
Welcome to another episode of covering real world innovations via interviews with fire service and technology industry experts that empower YOU to develop your very own Smart Firefighting strategy!
In this episode:
- What value can your department gain from a drone program?
- What is the evolution of drones in the fire industry?
- What is the Texas Public Safety Robotics Summit 2022?
Hear from former Austin firefighter Preston Culver, AKA the Director of Marketing at Granite Defense Technologies and creative force behind their event #TXPSROBOTS. Granite Defense Technologies delivers integrated technology solutions to public safety and military communities via consulting, training, implementation, hardware and software sales as well as support on the industry's leading products. In collaborating with both first responders and product manufacturers, they are able to learn about current problems, explore possible solutions and test these solutions in environments mocking the real world.
Culver's current role provides marketing and consulting services for technology solutions that work with first responders and public safety drone programs, yet his various other roles include drone pilot, photographer, videographer, graphic designer, Houston-region account manager, curriculum developer, social media manager, web designer and event producer.
Culver has been crucial in the behind-the-scenes execution of the Texas Public Safety Robotics Summit 2022, a 3 day action-packed showcase for the use of robotics (air, water and ground) in public safety via keynote presentations, field demonstrations, training scenario stations, roundtable discussions and more. By connecting the dots between the industry and its end users, #TXSROBOTS aims to offer the resources needed to integrate a drone program in your department.
