Utilising Drones at Incidents

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service crews have recently utilised drone technology while responding to a large waste fire at a recycling facility in Pembrokeshire.

On Wednesday, January 10th, MAWWFRS crews responded to a fire within an industrial unit in Waterston, Milford Haven. At the height of the incident six appliances, a water bowser, drone and the incident command unit were in attendance.

Using drone and thermal imaging technology not only maximises firefighter safety, but also provides additional situational awareness to incident commanders as well as updated visual information.
