Technology Demonstrated to Aid First Responders in Disaster Situations

Tulsa Firefighters Embrace Revolutionary Technology: Drones and Robots Set to Transform Emergency Response Efforts

In Tulsa, first responders are being introduced to new technology that has the potential to revolutionize the way they save lives. A demonstration at OSU Tulsa showcased how drones and robotic dogs could be utilized in emergency situations. While the Tulsa Fire Department already utilizes drones and robots, ongoing training and preparedness for first responders is necessary due to continuous advancements in technology.

During the demonstration, a drone descended from the sky to deliver vital supplies to a dog-like robot on the ground. Dr. Jamey Jacob from the Oklahoma Aerospace Institute explained that this process involves a coordinated effort between drone pilots and robot experts, with the ultimate goal of achieving full automation. He emphasized the importance of integrating this technology into the toolkit of every first responder, predicting that it would become standard practice in the future.

The Tulsa Fire Department has been using similar technology for nearly a decade, with drone pilot Gabriel Graveline highlighting the efficiency and safety benefits it provides. Graveline, a seasoned firefighter, highlighted the potential of drones and robots in enhancing the capabilities of first responders in various emergency scenarios. The Tulsa Fire Department is currently developing a program that would enable drones to autonomously respond to emergency scenes ahead of fire crews, providing valuable information and insights before their arrival. Graveline expressed optimism about the direction in which technology is moving, recognizing the immense potential it holds for improving emergency response efforts. As technology continues to evolve, integrating drones and robots into first responder operations is set to become standard practice, enhancing their ability to save lives and respond effectively to emergencies.

First Responders in Tulsa are being introduced to new technology that has the potential to revolutionize their work operations.

Recently, a demonstration at OSU Tulsa showcased how drones and robotic dogs could be utilized in emergency situations.

While some may argue that these tools are unnecessary for firefighters or paramedics, others see them as critical additions to their toolkit.

Dr. Jamey Jacob from Oklahoma Aerospace Institute explained during this demonstration how a coordinated effort between drone pilots and robot experts can achieve full automation when delivering vital supplies directly from hospitals to fields.

He emphasized how this technology should be integrated into every first responder’s toolkit as it will become standard practice in emergency response efforts.

Graveline highlighted how drones have helped him complete his job more efficiently and safely over nearly a decade with Oklahoma City Fire Department.

The department is currently working on developing an autonomous program where drones can respond ahead of fire crews during emergencies by providing valuable information before their arrival.
