Did you know we sometimes use drones at incidents? Using drones helps increase our situational awareness of fires and helps our Incident Commanders to develop tactics to tackle them london-fire.gov.uk/about-us/servi… Image
Our drones are permitted to fly up to 400ft above ground level, or higher in an emergency, and can fly as fast as 50mph. They can also act as a loudspeaker to give instructions or reassurance and shine a bright spotlight in dark or low light conditions Image
Our drone team took just nine months to become operational. In 2018, a bespoke course was run to train our team of drone pilots who were qualified within one week. We now have eight drone pilots who are available 24/7 Image
