VIDEO: Fire District 3 Battalion Chief’s truck is getting an upgrade. The truck is now equipped with a rooftop mounted box which houses a drone. This enhances firefighters' ability to access and monitor emergencies and conduct search and rescue operations. The drone can easily be launched, flown, and landed with the push of a single button by the incident commander. The aerial view provides incident commanders with a comprehensive view of situations as they unfold to aid in decision making and planning. It’s already been used on several real-life incidents with positive results and feedback.
