FEMA – Survey on Understanding Public Perception and Acceptance of First Responders Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems?…

Good morning,

For your consideration, I am attaching a link with details on a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) survey released yesterday titled  Â“Understanding Public Perception and Acceptance of First Responders Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems”.

The main goal of the survey is to understand the public perception of and identify concerns with current and potential uses of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) technology by first responders. 

The survey requests respondents include their demographic characteristics, knowledge of UAS, knowledge of the use of UAS by first responders, their overall trust in the use of new technologies by the government and first responders, their general attitudes about such use, and their opinions about the use of drones by first responders for specific applications like search-and-rescue. The deadline to respond to the survey is July 9, 2020.
