Drones Fighting Fires in NYC
For the first time in its history, the FDNY used a remote-controlled drone to help extinguish a burning building in New York City.
According to an FDNY spokesperson, the eight-pound drone was used to help emergency responders get a better look at a 4-alarm blaze that broke out at roughly 6:20 p.m. Monday night on the top floor of a residential building near the corner of Crotona Park North and Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. 168 firefighters responded to the scene, and two suffered minor injuries as they worked to extinguish the blaze.
“We were able to get a good view of the roof, which allowed the Incident Commander on the ground to view the firefighters as they were conducting rooftop operations, venting the roof and putting water on the fire,” Director of FDNY Operations Center Timothy Herlocker told the NY Post.
