Flirtey Wants Drones to Deliver Defibrillators in Nevada – Robotics Trends

Flirtey has partnered with a Reno, Nevada-based ambulance service in hopes of using drones to deliver portable defibrillators to 911 callers reporting symptoms of cardiac arrest.

When the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA) 911 call center receives a cardiac arrest call, in addition to dispatching an ambulance, a Flirtey drone carrying an automated external defibrillator (AED) will also be dispatched to the scene of the emergency. Watch the video above to see how the deliveries will work.

The drones will launch from stores owned and operated by Flirtey’s commercial clients and health partners. Of course, there are strict regulations for commercial drones in the United States, especially for flights beyond the operator’s visual line of sight. Flirtey said it and REMSA “are working on the necessary regulatory approvals together.”

REMSA and Flirtey are targeting a start date in early 2018.
