The fire department normally sends tactical personnel fully equipped to take photographs of an incident before spiritualistic deployment. The director of the fire department Timothy E. Herlocker said that “we have experienced benefits of deploying drones in 2014 at a gas explosion incident”.
An unskillful pilot captured images of the incident and then we compared them with photographs taken by our tactical unit. We found that drone images provided perfect views of the entire incident and it also provided extraordinary information than pictures captured from the ground.
