Drone Helped Crews Fight the South Fork Fire

In Fire, Inside the NPS, Science

Realization of a need and quick thinking by crews fighting the South Fork Fire last year led to the use of new ground breaking fire technology, the use of drones to pinpoint hotspots and areas of concern.

Remember is it illegal to fly your UAS (drone) in or around active fire areas or in National Parks. This was a sanctioned activity with proper clearance by government personnel in an effort to help fight the fire. Flying your drone in fire areas could endanger not only yourself but air crews who are responding to the fire. Always fly responsibly and know before you fly.
