Emergency Service Assistance Drones
Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey. Today, we would like to ask about your thoughts and experiences regarding first responders, and tools that might assist first responders in rescue situations.

The survey should only take about 3-5 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.

Being able to deliver first aid or supplies before physically reaching a victim
Being able to have a thermal or alternative non-direct view of the situation
Overall, how effective do you think your current tools are in getting a visual/assessment of an emergency situation prior to reaching the site?
If you answered 3 or less for the previous question, how could your tools be improved? What's missing? What would make the process 10 times better?

An emergency tool is worth x tax dollars per life saved
Please review the statements below and tell us how much you agree or disagree:
Somewhat disagree
Neither agree nor disagree
Somewhat agree
I am happy with the current tools facilitating emergency communication
If a tool provided me with a quicker line of sight in an emergency, I would use it
Faster/better 2-way communication with victims is highly beneficial
I think emergency service drones threaten first responder jobs
Having a drone to help the crew would help save lives
The cost to purchase and use a new tool isn't important if it saves lives
