The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) will expand the application of drones, which had been used only at disaster sites until now, to include the public safety domain.
With the application of drones to disaster sites in August 2016, it became easier to quickly assess the situation and come up responsive measures at disaster sites which include mountain fires, skyscrapers, and densely populated housing areas. The SMG will continue to expand upon the scope of drone application with a long term perspective to preemptively respond to emergency situations.
To do so, the SMG will build a road network database by expanding upon the firefighting safety measures created by the Seocho Fire Station. Then, it will build a swift disaster response system by reflecting the database in the Firefighting Safety Map of the comprehensive disaster management system.
At the same time, drones will be used in the public safety domain engaging in filming boar-infested areas and delivering the videos to related organizations. Through such efforts, the SMG plans to secure public safety and create a safe city.
