The East Great Plain Vol Fire Dept is an all volunteer department . “There have been large scale fires that a drone would assist the Incident Commander in making decisions in the firefighting effort. We as the town also have a marina that we protect. There have been incidents involving boating accidents where the drone would allow the fire department to be able to see exactly what is going on at the boat incident to assist the responding fire/police boats. We have some areas that we have had brush fires, and have been tough to get to and assess. With a drone, we can get a view to see what direction the fire is traveling and if there are any other hazards in the area that the fire department may not be aware of ” said Chief Keith Milton of the East Great Plain Vol Fire Dept.
