Skyfire Partners With Darley to Give Away a Drone Program
ATLANTA, April 6, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Skyfire Consulting, an Atlanta-based public safety drone consultancy, is partnering with equipment giant W.S. Darley and Co. to give away a complete drone program to a public safety agency.
The program, valued at over $25-thousand, will include equipment, training and FAA authorizations for the winning department.
"This is everything an agency needs to start a professional and legal drone program for their response effort," says Matt Sloane, CEO of Skyfire Consulting.
"Having worked with more than 100 agencies and written over 60 FAA certificates of authorization, we look forward to helping this department implement a technology that will help them save lives."
Skyfire has partnered with W.S. Darley for the past two years to bring industry-leading equipment and services to both companies' clients.
"Our partnership with Skyfire Consulting is incredibly valuable," says Mike Mocerino, Head of Robotics at W.S. Darley and Co. "Together, we're able to provide our customers with everything they need to get their drone programs started."
For the award, Darley will provide all of the necessary equipment, paired with Skyfire's services offerings.
"We're excited to give away this program because it will help increase awareness of drones in public safety," says Mocerino. "It's still very early days for public safety drone programs, and every new program helps show how valuable these tools can be."
The two companies will be showing off their industry-leading technology at the upcoming Fire Department Instructors Conference, taking place April 23 - 28 in Indianapolis.
Skyfire will be demoing all of the latest UAV technology inside a flight cage at Darley's booth, as well as at a pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, April 24, and a hot class on XYZ.
