Drone technology arms firefighters with aerial insight enabling rapid, efficient, and informed decisions to maximize safety.

Firefighters are quickly adopting next-generation aerial tools, ranging from multi-gas detectors to high-resolution thermal and visual cameras, enabling rapid and informed decisions when responding to volatile emergency situations. 

Firefighting Key Benefits

  • Urban Firefighting - Provide immediate aerial intelligence and guide optimal response to protect people and property
  • Forest Firefighting - Scan vast areas and quickly identify fire lines, assess their threat, and optimize response
  • HazMat Operations - Rapidly and remotely identify threats while keeping response teams safe

Urban Firefighting


Traditional Challenges Urban Fire Response

  • Arriving on scene, smoke, buildings, and obstacles can make it challenging to determine the scope of a fire and its threat
  • Limited ground perspectives on the fire can hinder the optimal deployment of attention and resources
  • In the aftermath of a fire disaster, it can be hazardous and costly to survey and document damage

How Drones Aid Urban Firefighting

  • Fly over buildings and obstacles, and see through smoke with thermal cameras to help prioritize targets
  • Stream live video intelligence back to command centers to align teams and eliminate uncertainty
  • Leverage high-resolution cameras to remotely monitor remaining threats and document damage for future analysis

Forest Firefighting


Traditional Challenges For Forest Firefighting

  • Inadequate road infrastructure and complex terrain makes patrolling high-risk forested regions challenging for ground teams
  • From the ground, it can be difficult to quickly determine the scope of a fire and to prioritize targets
  • Without eyes on scene, it can be challenging for incident commanders to optimally direct the front line

How Drones Facilitate Forest Firefighting

  • Bypass natural obstacles and quickly scout high-risk forested regions from above
  • Fly above the tree-line to quickly ascertain the scope of the fire, and establish fire lines and firebreaks
  • With an eye in the sky, incident commanders can determine where to deploy resources

HazMat Operations


Traditional Challenges for HazMat Teams

  • Before teams can move in, gaining mission-critical situational awareness costs precious time when every moment matters
  • HazMat teams are exposed to great risk when they assess for gas, liquid, and solid hazardous materials
  • Disposable HazMat suits and equipment are expensive and cumbersome, increasing response times and operation costs

How Drones Aid HazMat Operations

  • Rapidly scan the hazard and its surroundings, and provide incident commanders with critical intelligence to guide next steps
  • Hover near and remotely assess the nature of threats with thermal cameras and multi-gas detector payloads
  • Capture evidence of HazMat and clean-up procedures for cost analysis and future training documentation
