Researches and development in the field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have been rising and flourishing worldwide over decades. In view of its features of cost efficiency and mobility taking the place of traditional ones, the application of UAV already goes beyond military use to other categories such as environmental monitoring, agriculture, fishing, and even the execution of exceptionally hazardous missions. Highlighting the feasibility and safety issues upon putting UAV into calamity salvage, to begin with, this study investigated existing rescuing regulations, framework, executive body-National Airborne Service Corps, Ministry of the Interior (NASC)- and its mechanism. Afterward, impact upon UAV's sustaining role along with its implementing edge and flaw were further analyzed. Ultimately, "safety" is still the weight-bearing point. Holding safety management views, this study set forth administering and planning concerns about UAV's involvement into rescuing system through examining and comparing regulations as well as references for UAV domestically and globally. With the source of UAV, enhancing rescuing efficiency, rolling back casualties and commanding the effect of disasters are expecting merit to NASC.
