After Drone Delivery Failed Emergency Crews Deliver Meds
After massive snowstorms that have rendered the area inaccessible for 12 to 14 days, emergency crews from San Diego and Escondido have been dispatched to the San Bernardino Mountains to deliver medications to senior citizens and disabled residents who have been stranded in their homes as a result of the storms.
High winds prevented drone delivery of meds
Rich Eagan, a firefighter in Chula Vista who has been on the job for 33 years, stated that emergency crews are going door-to-door to deliver medications because an attempt to use drones to deliver the medications was unsuccessful due to winds of 40 miles per hour.
“Initially, we tried using drones to deliver their medication, but the winds were 40 miles per hour and it didn’t work,” said Eagan according to 10News.
The Chula Vista Fire Department has dispatched a crew of ten people to assist with the emergency efforts that are currently underway in the region.
