Jason Caughey of Firehouse interviews two firefighters who are utilizing drones in their training programs to improve firefighter performance. "The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, aka drones) in addition to our video-recording system added to our ability to document and train our members on exterior operations, and in our world, the importance of wildland events. With the success of our video recording of structure fire events, we thought we could have the same impact on other areas of our training.
