FRISCO, Texas - Lexipol Media Group (LMG), the parent company of Police1 and FireRescue1, and DRONERESPONDERS, the premier 501(c)3 non-profit program supporting the use of uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) by public safety agencies and emergency services organizations around the world, today announced a strategic partnership to promote the safe and effective use of drones by first responders for life and safety missions. The collaboration will leverage the extensive reach of LMG’s platforms to amplify DRONERESPONDERS events and other initiatives.
“We are excited to partner with DRONERESPONDERS in support of our shared mission to serve public safety and ensure the safety of first responders and the communities they serve,” said Greg Toritto, VP of Strategic Partnerships & Solutions at Lexipol Media Group. “As with any emerging technology, public safety agencies need help understanding how UAS can help them operate more efficiently, effectively, and most importantly, more safely. This partnership provides both organizations with an opportunity to utilize each other’s strengths to support the agencies we serve.”
By leveraging Lexipol Media Group’s industry-leading Police1 and FireRescue1 media channels, and DRONERESPONDERS’ events and unparallelled expertise in the UAS space, the two organizations will work together to make critical information, training, and data more accessible and actionable for public safety agencies.
“The extensive subscriber base of Police1 and FireRescue1 will allow us to expand our reach across our target audiences significantly,” said Charles Werner, Director, DRONERESPONDERS. “We look forward to partnering with Lexipol as a Diamond Sponsor for the 2024 National Public Safety UAS Conference, as well as an official partner of our Drone as a First Responder Working Group.”
This partnership marks a significant step forward in advancing the use of drone technology in public safety and underscores both organizations’ commitment to enhancing the effectiveness and safety of first responders through innovative solutions and access to resources.
