Skyfire Consulting Gains FAA's Sign-Off on Los Angeles Fire Department's UAV Program, Announces 2018 Initiatives

ATLANTA, Jan. 25, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Skyfire Consulting, the country's premier public safety-focused drone company, kicked off 2018 by gaining the FAA's sign-off on the Los Angeles Fire Department's in-house UAV program. LAFD, one of the nation's busiest fire/rescue agencies, put their trust in the four-year-old consulting company, based on their proven track record of success with FAA filings in the public safety space.

"Developing and implementing a UAS program is a major undertaking," said Battalion Chief Rich Fields, the department's UAS coordinator. "It was great to have Skyfire's expertise just a phone call away, and they made our final push very easy."

These successes in mind, Skyfire, run by FAA-certified pilots, many with backgrounds in public safety, continues to develop programs for DeKalb County Fire Rescue, the State of Georgia's busiest service, as well as Orange County California Fire Authority, Orlando Fire Department, and dozens more.

In addition to their standard, two-day UAVs for Public Safety training class, 2018 will bring five new training courses to Skyfire's industry-leading catalog. These courses include Basic UAV Maintenance and Repair, in-depth scenario-based training, focused seminars on the ins and outs of UAV apps, thermal imaging, and accident reconstruction.

Skyfire will debut much of this new training at the second annual Skyfire Conference, taking place Feb. 28 - March 2 at Canyon of the Eagles Resort, and the Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, Texas.

The conference offers both the two-day drone basics class for agencies who need initial training, and an intensive three-day, scenario-based training class, centered around live fire burns, accident reconstruction scenarios, and search and rescue missions.

Continuing to build on the successes of Skyfire's partnership with public safety industry titan W.S. Darley & Co., Skyfire's UAV services will be offered in collaboration with Darley's extensive line-up of public safety equipment at many upcoming industry events.

Representatives from Skyfire will be exhibiting at the FDIC International, April 26 - 28 in Indianapolis, Indiana; at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, July 23 - 29 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Fire-Rescue International, Aug. 8 - 11 in Dallas, Texas; and at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference, Oct. 6 - 9 in Orlando, Florida.
