Civilian rescue organizations may be guerrillas in the rescue forces, but they often face big scenes related to the safety of people’s lives and property. The importance of upgrading professional skills and equipment is even greater than a passionate heart of public welfare.

Spontaneous rescue safety guarantee is a problem

In a rescue on September 4, 2012, three volunteers of Xingping detachment of Shaanxi emergency rescue corps were seriously injured in a car accident on the way; On may27,2013, while searching for and rescuing two missing donkey friends crossing Taibai Mountain in Ao mountain, the deputy leader of Shaanxi Shuguang rescue team “Tianwang” was bitten by a poisonous snake; On the afternoon of December 5, 2017, Huang Ma, a key member of Shaanxi Qinling rescue team, accidentally fell off a cliff and died when he went deep into the Qinling Mountains to rescue the lost elderly.

Such regrets have been occurring in non-governmental rescue organizations. At the end of each sign up for rescue, there is the same sentence: “participating in this search and rescue activity is voluntary and will bear all the consequences”. Guess, when signing, the civilian heroes still have some hidden worries.

Equipment update security upgrade

Due to the particularity of rescue work, local non-governmental rescue organizations are generally faced with the problem of no guarantee. Improving their own skills and rescue equipment has become the key to ensure their own safety.

No matter in fire rescue or mountain rescue in special terrain, the role of UAV can not be underestimated. As an important application of sudden accident reconnaissance and disaster return, UAV has become a new technology and high-level equipment in the disaster prevention and emergency industry. UAV has strong adaptability to environmental and meteorological conditions. It can collect data on site, transmit data in real time and track the development trend of events, providing reference for rational allocation of rescue forces, determination of key areas for disaster relief, selection of safe rescue routes and post disaster reconstruction site selection. Wuhan clouded leopard rescue team joined several rescue UAVs with different functions last year. They can either throw lifebuoys, throw ropes, or complete horizontal object handover in the air. More importantly, the newly added UAV has realized intelligent control. Operators who only have experience in playing car models and aircraft models can master relevant operations and implement basic rescue within half an hour.

Thermal imaging equipment has also played a great role in the civilian rescue process. In large-scale rescue sites, private rescue forces have greatly made up for the lack of national rescue forces and improved the government’s support for private rescue work. Through the thermal imaging equipment combined with the public security online monitoring big data platform, determine the trapped people or the fire situation at the fire site, and detect some disaster gases, so as to ensure the safety of rescue personnel while rescuing.

In the era of artificial intelligence +, security robots are gradually emerging. Taking part of the rescue forces by security robots can ensure the personal safety of civilian rescue team members to a certain extent. Using robots to assist people to work in high-risk places and complex environments has gradually become a trend in the future. At present, patrol robots are mainly used in emergency rescue such as patrol, fire fighting and fire fighting in the field of public security, and fixed-point patrol in the field of power.

Conclusion: a non-governmental rescue team needs not only love, professional rescue ability, but also government guidance and support. Although the difficulties faced by non-governmental relief have not yet come to an end, the development of science and technology and the updating of equipment have added a sense of security to them. The application of science and technology has turned the once stormboat carpet search and rescue into UAV cooperation, and enabled a group of volunteer teams to gain more security.
