Learn about the public use of drones to support emergency responses, cross-border commerce and safety in the San Diego area at the 7 pm Thursday, March 14 meeting of the Poway Neighborhood Emergency Corps (PNEC). It will be held at City Council Chambers, located at 13325 Civic Center Drive.
The speaker at the event is Tiffany Vinson, Advanced Initiatives Program Manager for the City of San Diego Office of Homeland Security, who is responsible for the testing, integration, and policy development of emerging technologies. Vinson leads the city’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program, which tests operations over people or flight beyond visual line of sight, in order to safely integrate drones into the National Airspace System. The City of San Diego was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as one of 10 agencies in the nation to participate in the UAS Integration Pilot Program.
The nonprofit PNEC works to complement the City of Poway Emergency Operations Plan through a grass roots communication network of neighbors.
