The use of drones can bypass all these problems as they need no pilot onboard and can fly very close to the ground to get a better idea of the situation. Drones are currently being best used in the danger zones as they provide a view of the situation beforehand enabling the rescuers to formulate a strategy that will be effective and efficient enough to tackle the situation in as little time as possible.
The great thing about drones is that their performance can be enhanced with add-ons as well. For instances, there can be various devices attached to the drone such as a gas measurement device or a thermal image camera. Gas measurement devices are helping rescuers in detecting the type of smoke that is present in the fire which helps the fire fighters determine their strategy of putting out the fire.
