Got a mutual aid call out to assist the City of Coolidge (AZ) last night. Eight FDs responded. Only RFRD (yours truly) provided UAS support.


Command truck had a very cool telescoping TV mast but chemical cloud forced us to stage a quarter mile from the fire, which pretty much made command blind. UAS pics/video provided the only overwatch which helped command work out the plan of attack. I expect we may see an increased interest in UAS in the area. ;)

Thanks for the post. Very interesting to see the capabilities of the drone and the assistance it can provide.
