Here’s what Kyle Nordfors had to say on Facebook about the Weber County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue fundraiser for new drone:

Weber County Search and Rescue is comprised of some of the most highly skilled individuals in their unique expertise. We started a drone team hoping that we could implement drones to give support to our other teams to increase our response times.

We are conducting a fundraiser to provide our volunteers with the drone needed to save as many lives as possible. Please watch this video for more information from our team.
