State Farm® to Conduct Drone Damage Assessment Flights Following Hurricane Michael

Source: State Farm 10-16 Press Release

CADO Admin
It was less than one month ago when Hurricane Florence struck North and South Carolina. State Farm was the first and only insurance company to receive an FAA waiver allowing Claims pilots to operate drones beyond visual line of sight and over people for damage assessment. Drone flights were coordinated with the FAA and Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP) at Virginia Tech as part of the Integration Pilot Program for large-scale damage assessment in Virginia and South Carolina.

Laser Measuring Devices

CADO Admin
Subject: Laser Measuring Devices Description:   Current opinions? I've looked thru the old posts, seeing many recommendations for Disto, and some for the El Cheapo Stanley. There are about 5 models of Disto, any opinions as to which would be the best to cover all situations? The 100' Stanley seems like a great choice for a backup no matter how you 'slice' it. I'd appreciate any current opinions, both pro & con on the various Disto models. I'd also love a few how-to questions answered about them: -Visibility aside, how is a fence measured?  If you have to use a plate, doesn't that take up about as much time as measuring with a tape? - There are instances when the ability...

Ladders - What Do You Use and Why?

CADO Admin
Subject: Ladders - What Do You Use and Why? Description:   I had an interesting discussion with an adjuster the other day on ladders. He said he used a telescoping ladder and loved it. I thought I would ask a few other adjusters and when I did, I received just as many different responses. I thought I would throw a little survey on this thread to see what responses I would get from the folks that surf CADO. If you want to participate please answer the following: 1. What type and manufacturer name of ladder to you use? 2. How long have you been using it? 3. What do you like about the ladder? 4. What do you NOT like about the ladder? 5. If you were to purchase another ladder, would you buy the same...
