Standard for sUAS (Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems) for Public Safety Operations (NFPA 2400)

Blog Post created by Michael Wixted Employee on Apr 13, 2017

You are all probably wondering what’s happening in the world of NFPA and Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS, or outside of the U.S.A. commonly referred to as UAV’s/Drones), especially since the request for a new standards project was approved at the August 2016 NFPA Standards Council meeting.

 

Wouldn’t it be nice to see what’s happening at NFPA, check out industry tools for emergency responders on sUAS, and even take a look at some stuff overseas, all at a glance? Well, see attached the NFPA sUAS Topic Handout just for you. Not just what NFPA is doing, but some really useful tools and information available through other organizations and groups.

 

Note the standard is still in draft development, subject to change and ballot of the full Technical Committee, and a full public review through NFPA’s Standards Development Process (once the draft is completed and approved by the NFPA Standards Council).

 

Stay tuned and fly safely.
