Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced more than 500 students have been trained in the use of unmanned aircraft systems, or drones, for public safety operations at the State Preparedness Training Center. The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services reached the milestone in April during its UAS Awareness workshop, one of four courses offered on UAS operations. The courses help educate public safety officials and first responders on how to integrate drones into their public safety operations. With the majority of the training season still ahead, the Division expects to build on this number significantly over the next year and train several hundred more operators by 2020.
