Provide Feedback on Proposed UAS/Drone Program at Public Meetings During January

Fairfax County UAS public meetings

Posted at 11:55 a.m.

Fairfax County is developing a comprehensive Public Safety Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) program and would like to hear from our residents on what they think. We are hosting six public information meetings located throughout Fairfax County.

Each public information meeting will include a static display of unmanned aircraft followed by a presentation beginning at 7 p.m. outlining the program. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions from representatives of the Office of Emergency Management, County Attorney’s Office and Police and Fire and Rescue Department. .

To find out more about the UAS program go to The draft public safety UAS program manual is located there along with a form. You may also want to read the NewsCenter article that talks more about the program as well.

Please send your feedback or questions to or through the link located on the UAS webpage. Written comments on the draft program must be received by the close of business Feb. 8, 2019 to be included in the official public record.
