Local law enforcement announced a partnership with a drone developer that will create an aircraft capable of saving lives. It’s not yet legal for them to use the drone, but participating in the development stage now means they’ll be ready when it becomes legal.

The next time you get lost it could be a search and rescue drone that comes to find you. One planed for that use is currently being developed by Reno based Drone America.

“Our focus is humanitarian relief, disaster response, search and rescue. That is what we do and we hope to do it better than most,” said, Mike Richards, CEO of Drone America.
