A Drone May Save Your Life in the Future.

Drones have many uses—from military strikes to package delivery. One of the most important uses is to save lives. In times of emergency, a drone is often the cheapest and most efficient way to find a missing person, deliver needed medicine, or survey a disaster scene. In the case of cardiac arrest, it could take an EMT ten or more minutes to get to the scene.

An emergency drone can get a defibrillator to a patient within a 5 square mile zone within a minute, increasing the chance of survival from 8 percent to 80 percent. The drone tracks emergency mobile calls and uses GPS to navigate to the crisis. This same drone can be used by the Coast Guard when they are a distance from a capsized boat.
