Firefighting Drones Drones In The Field Infographic Dronefly

Thanks to Alex from Dronefly for sending us this tip! Alex writes:

When dealing with disasters or burning buildings firefighters will quickly be able to deploy a drone to gain information on the current ground situations. This aerial view can be applied to other situations such as wildland firefighting, search & rescue operations, and scene monitoring.

As the L.A. Fire Department uses drones to assess fire damage and hot spots we thought having an article about the use of drones and firefighting with an infographic would be awesome!

From Dronefly’s press release:

Dronefly, a leader in commercial drone solutions has been working alongside officials to identify and develop solutions for fire fighting and rescue operations. Our goal with this infographic is to educate the public and other first responders on the many benefits of drones. These benefits include a quickly deployable aerial overview, a lower cost compared to manned aircraft, payload drop systems, and thermal camera payload options.

Read the full press release to learn about the four key firefighting uses and see the full infographic!


Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
