Drones and Emergencies DO NOT Mix

While drones can be fun to use and produce interesting photos and videos, they can be a hindrance to emergency crews at critical incidents. This past week, someone was flying a drone around the small vegetation fire off Augusta Drive which prevented the helicopters that arrived to assist from being able to fight the fire. This could have had tragic results if the fire had spread as firefighters lost a critical firefighting tool. It is imperative that drones are not flown around an emergency incident - not only is it hazardous to all, but it is also illegal under state and federal laws.
