    Outside contractors used by Fire departments

    I'm wondering if there are outside contractors that partner with local fire departments to provide drone services. Doing some initial research it seems like everything I can find has to do with departments starting and running their drone ops from within.

    If a drone falls in a forest does anybody care...? Fire risks of unretrieved drones.

    I have searched and searched and I cannot see that anyone has addressed this head on, but pardon me if there has been some dedicated discussion on this topic. Preamble: I live in BC (Canada) and do a lot of backcountry camping and hiking. I have an Advanced Operations Drone Pilot Certificate...

    M2EA Viewing IR strobes

    Hello all! I am trying to find any information. Can the M2EA see IR strobes (attached to personnel), either with an IR cut on the visible camera, or through the thermal camera?

    Safe Controller Charging

    Hey folks. I've had my Mavic for about a month and didn't consider battery safety at all when I bought it. Fast forward that month and I've opted for the "better safe than sorry" approach and bought a Bat-Safe and some LiPo bags. I figure my house and family's lives are worth more than the $80...

    Is it legal and ethical to fly near firefighters in a case like this?

    I live right next to this marina. I could have sent my Mavic out to shoot this fire, but thought it might be a distraction or even illegal. (This isn't like a massive wildfire with an NFZ obviously) I am still new to the hobby and trying to learn the law and what's ethical. I have no real...
