How Fire-Fighters are Using Drones to Implement Creative Solutions

Adopting any new technology can be a challenge for public safety agencies that have to justify their spending.  However, if you believe in something enough and it works, you are able to reap the rewards. This is what the Lynwood Fire Department, in Illinois, experienced after putting their trust in drone technology and deciding to use DJI drones in their everyday work.

Since then, the Lynwood Fire Department has come up with some creative solutions to conquer challenges that without drones would require a considerable amount of effort and time. Searching for the most likely underwater position of a car that drove off the road into a frozen pond and dropping off a phone to help police negotiate with an armed person who barricaded himself in a residence, are just two examples of drone solutions implemented by the Lynwood Fire Department.

Every day the number of public safety agencies that use drones is increasing rapidly, making their work easier, safer, and increasing cost efficiency.
