Onsite real-time video streaming of traffic accidents covering condition of inflicted person can help overcome problem of under and over-triage by emergency services. A network of Rescue Emergency Drones (REDs) that could transmit live video to emergency services is proposed to be mounted at the sites prone to frequent accidents in Denmark. A risk mapping for placement of RED docking stations at suitable places of southern Danish city, Esbjerg and its outskirts has been designed using Geographical Information System (GIS) tools ArcMap, and ArcGIS 10.5.1. The result demonstrates the robustness of RED into emergency services by providing high quality footage that helps to assess the scene of crash faster than the standard existing procedure.
