Completed Projects/Testimonials

Aretas’ business development officer Greg Duerksen, a firefighter, is most excited about the valuable help the drones can offer fire departments, like that in Mackenzie, in northern B.C., which bought the first one. During its first flight in Mackenzie, the UAV flew over a hog fuel (wood chip) pile of concern, sending live, high-definition (HD) video and thermal imagery to the base station where fire department and B.C. Wildfire Service representatives could see stress cracks, vents and hot spots they couldn’t have seen any other way. “Already in its first flight, the UAV has proven to be an invaluable piece of equipment,” said Deputy Chief Keinan Carty in a news release. Chief Jamie Guise agreed. “We embrace the use of UAV’s as a tool in our fire rescue service. We have hand-held FLIR (forward looking infrared) cameras, dash cams and automated pumping systems in our engines. UAV’s equipped with HD and FLIR cameras allow us to perform our duties safely and efficiently.”
Monitoring at a Steamboat Springs, CO ice arena protected employees and the public from high Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide levels. The Howelsen Park Ice Arena received a notification of high-levels of CO exceeding 120 ppm. As shown in the graph on the left (see link to online article) of the actual event CO levels rose to 123 ppm. The cause turned out to be due to be from combustion engine powered heavy equipment being run during routine maintenance. The management team lead by Mike Albrecht were able to take immediate action in ventilating the space before any true health issues arose.
