Drones can be employed for various relief operations during natural calamities.
The picture of the flood hit Jammu and Kashmir is fading from our minds slowly. We are forgetting the cries of the helpless who were struck in the floods. We are forgetting the stories of people who survived for a number of days without food and water. The agony of those who craved for medicine is fading from our minds. Will we not wake up till another calamity strikes? Have we learnt lessons from the past to tackle such calamities?
The technology looks hopeful to handle such calamities. Drones are a good option to supply emergency drugs and minimum essentials to the people stranded in unreachable places.
Drones are airborne vehicles which are auto controlled. Apart from numerous other utilities that drones have, supplying medicine and survival materials during natural calamities is a major task drone can be used for. They can drop the packets at the destinations where humans cannot reach. The delivery is fast and more accurate. With the use of drones, many lives can be saved during natural calamities like earthquake or floods.
There should be a set-up which needs to be on alert 24/7 to handle such casualties. The team should include the best of technology and people who are service oriented and skilled in tackling such situation. Only then many lives could be saved
