I have been one of your California volunteers for a couple of years. But, now I have moved to Forest Grove, Oregon. How do I go about officially changing my change of address with SWARM from Salinas, California to Forest Grove, Oregon?

Thanks, Terry Young

HI


I'm from Saskatchewan, Canada. I am a member of our local volunteer fire and ambulance department. We are interested in a drone for search and rescue. We were thinking of getting a DJI Phantom 4 with a thermal camera. Just wondering what you would recommend. Thanks for your time.

@jtcanada  Hi,

the Phantom is a great photo/video platform but you can't change the built-in camera with a thermal one, at least not easily. You would have to mod the phantom a lot to attach an other thermal inaging device to the Phantom and get the FPV thermal image on your tablet. You could attach an additional thermal camera but that would influence the stability and you still would not have the real- time image.

I'm affraid that you will have to spend more bucks than that...

@DarioFinderle hi,

@pilot21son Hi! I just received an email saying you would be willing to help search for my brother's missing dog, Achilles. Is that accurate? If so, please email me at lsbarrac@gmail.com at your earliest convenience. They purchased tickets to come home, so if we are able to coordinate before they leave, that would be fantastic. It would be short notice , though, so we understand if you aren't able. 


Thank you SO much!!!

I like the idea, but I don't see a quick and easy way for people to contact SAR volunteers. Am I missing something on the site? All I see is a link to the roster, but there is no information on the roster on how to contact these people.

It is true and we are in the database and I am content knowing that thus Facebook is out and if needed we will be called upon and further more I do not need my name as listed in my area with the state of our own privacy. We are in this loop and I will respond if called upon in an instant.That is my take on the subject and it warrants "\"re-thinking"!.
