WYOMING — Christmas has come early to Laramie County Fire District 1.
In a Wyoming Tribune Eagle report, the emergency response-meets-community safety outfit announced recently acquisition of an DJI Matrice 210 Version 2 Unmanned Aerial System, or drone.
According to fire district data, the Matrice 210 drone equips thermal imaging capability, imagery as well as mapping enhancement, and videography access. Firefighters also benefit by capability to perform down range fly-by’s regarding radiation or harmful gas detection, significantly reducing potential danger to personnel operating in a hazardous environment.
Additionally, search-and-rescue operations will be able to cover expanded area in greatly reduced time or, in instance of grass fire, an aerial view will better steer firefighters toward primary response locations.
The surrounding community is believed to benefit by improved safety overall thanks to the Fire District 1’s drone purchase.
