Will Coldwell, commercial director at ConsortiQ said, “Being low cost, hyper mobile and incredibly agile solution, a drone, when used effectively, can be the perfect addition to any emergency services tool kit. We are already seeing many police, fire, and emergency medical response units adopt this technology, and we hope to inspire more at the Emergency Services trade show this September.”

Coldwell continued, “If you’re unsure of how they work, are still worried about the risks, or are looking for help in deploying a drone in your unit then we invite you to listen to our talks to learn more, or even better, come to our booth and speak to a member of our team at the up-coming event.”

Training manager Bryce Allcorn; marketing executive, Shea O’Donnell; marketing manager, Helen Cope; operations manager, John Gore and commercial director Will Coldwell will be representing ConsortiQ at the Emergency Services Show. With a shared wealth of knowledge and industry experience between them, they look forward to meeting and sharing ideas with the UK’s emergency service units.

Will Coldwell will be presenting his talk titled ‘Regulations and Training Standards - what they are now and where they could go’ in the Drone Theatre on 21stSeptember at 14:15. This talk will cover the current regulations applicable to Blue-light services and the effects they are having on current operations, as well as the current training standards in the area and the possibilities of what unification of training standards could mean for the industry.  He will be allowing for 30 minutes of Q&A time after the seminar, and looks forward to discussing this subject further.
