VRSA grant funds drone for New River Resource Authority

Inspecting facilities for damage can be a risky business – especially for water authorities. After significant weather events, many members must send staff up ladders and onto tall structures in order to conduct an inspection.

The New River Resource Authority requested VRSA Risk Management Grant funds for the purchase of a drone to use exactly for this purpose.

VRSA Senior Safety Consultant Edward Shelton recently visited the authority to learn more. At the end of the video below, learn from VRSA Public Safety Specialist Gary Dillon about how VRSA’s two FAA certified drone pilots can help your entity get started with drones.
