Drone Operations

Why & How Eagle Mountain City uses a Drone

Eagle Mountain City obtained a sUAS or drone in 2017 to reduce the time and costs associated with numerous tasks that required accessing remote areas, significant time dedicated to travel, and at times performing work that a drone could do far more safely.

Drone operations performed by Eagle Mountain City must abide by the Eagle Mountain City sUAS operational use policy which can be found at the link below. This policy includes a list of approved uses, measures to maintain safety, and precautions related to transparency and privacy. To maintain a high-standard of transparency, Eagle Mountain City posts on this page information regarding operations that will be taking place 24-hours prior to the start of an operation.
