The town’s public safety officials have added a new weapon to their arsenal to protect citizens. Actually, they’ve added two of them, but they don’t resemble any of the traditional tools law enforcement or fire and rescue personnel might employ. They don’t have the ammunition of a firearm or the sharp teeth of a K9 officer. They don’t require the high-pressure water of a fire hose or the oxygen tanks of a firefighter’s turnout gear. What they do require, however, is an FAA-licensed and specially trained pilot – a hands-on educational process that can take anywhere from six to eight weeks – to guide the town’s two new Lemur S drones. Manufactured by BRINC, the company says its drones provide American-made assets “that protect first responders and people in situations of real-world danger.”
