Wildfire fighting with help from drones

Recommended Posts

Very interesting article about how drones can help fire departments fight wildfires and ordinary fires.  More than 180 fire departments across the country are using drones.  The big expense is training and drone maintenance as you would expect.  Yet, it seems that fire departments feel the cost is worth it.  References are made to GoTenna and ATAK for sending live drone footage to firefighter cell phones.  Very interesting article.

The reporter says of the Menlo Park Fire Department that "The department has almost every consumer DJI drone..."

Drones are finding ever-expanding use everywhere.
