John Buell is a Texas Peace Officer (20 years experience) and military veteran with expertise in SAR, WMD Civil Support, Recovery Dive Teams, and Chem/Bio/Radiation hazards.  He has created a copyrighted Standard Operating Manual and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for unmanned aircraft in public safety operations that is already in use today.

This comprehensive two-day course is for Public Safety agencies and departments who want to establish a safe and professional Small Unmanned Aerial Systems program for their jurisdictions. This course will give administrators the tools and information needed from selecting flight team members to public safety fight team operations.
