Drones are being looked at to help fight wildfires. An Arizona bill has been introduced to help look at how drones can be used to help firefighters, and save lives.

“The bill, the Protecting Firefighters and Promoting Innovation Act, establishes a group led by officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and Department of the Interior to study drone use in fighting wildfires. The group also includes representatives from local firefighting departments, national environmental agencies and the National Guard.”

When the sensationalism is ignored, the great things that UAVs can do come to light.
