EARTH­QUAKE AS­SIS­TANCE

SP's Aviation - - UCAV -

In 2012, a US Air Force (USAF) Preda­tor B helped with mock search and res­cue ef­forts af­ter a sim­u­lated earth­quake struck south­ern Cal­i­for­nia. The ex­er­cise demon­strated Preda­tor B’s abil­ity to be in­te­grated with civil­ian disas­ter re­lief agency ef­forts. This ex­er­cise fol­lowed in the wake of a pow­er­ful earth­quake that shook Haiti in 2010 where USAF Preda­tor air­craft were crit­i­cal in help­ing first re­spon­ders spot fires and find survivors.
