CRISIS MANOEUVRES PIOTRKÓW TRYBUNALSKI 2021
The starosty of Piotrków is considering the purchase of a drone, which will make it much easier and faster to search for missing persons. Rescue services carry out at least several similar actions a year, especially in autumn when many people go mushrooming in the woods. The presentation of the drone took place on Monday.
The Yuneec drone is equipped with the SARUAV system. It is a program created by scientists from the University of Wroclaw and is used for deep analysis of pictures taken from the air in order to determine the location of missing persons. The presentation of the device was attended by representatives of the district: Poviat Starost Piotr Wojtysiak, Chairman of the Council Bernard Matyszewski, Deputy Starost Dariusz Magacz and Head of the Crisis Management Department Karolina Cubała. There were also representatives of firefighters, foresters and police officers.
- The uniqueness of this drone lies firstly in the fact that it is equipped with six rotors. Secondly, it has interchangeable cameras and a great many accessories that can be attached to it. For example, a gas detector. With it, you can check if someone has been burning coal or rubbish in the cooker. Moreover, this device is useful in chemical rescue situations, where we need to know whether there are harmful leaks in a road accident, for example, a tanker truck. - says Karol Rodzik representative of Aero Mind. - The equipment is also useful in searching for people. It is adjusted to the so-called photogrammetric raids, which is a technology similar to mapping. We have a special programme created by a team from the Wrocław University. It makes it possible to analyse pictures from a raid in terms of the presence of people in the pictures. The system can detect even a very small figure, which would be difficult to spot for an operator of a regular drone or a pilot of a search helicopter. The system has already been used in several units and it has a track record of successes, as thanks to it, a wanted person was found in the forest - adds Wojciech Gruźliński from Aero Mind.
The Starosty of Piotrków is considering the purchase of a drone. - Due to the fact that many areas of our district are covered by forests and we have a lot of disappearances, we decided to take part in the show and consider the purchase of this equipment. At the moment no decisions have been made. The decision whether to buy the equipment will be made by the District Board - says Karolina Cubała, head of the Department of Crisis Management at the Piotrków District Starosty in an interview with Piotrkowskie24.
