As the number of UAS/drone encounters rise, it is essential that air-medical programs work to educate their communities about safe operation, and report incidents to local law enforcement, to the closest tower, as well as to the FAA directly. The myriad of rules and regulations can be confusing to law enforcement, though. To help cut through the clutter, the FAA has compiled some resources that you can share with your local law enforcement that can assist them in knowing what is legal, what is not, and what to do when they encounter unauthorized drone utilization.
