Los Angeles FD Approved for Drones

June 22, 2017

City of Los Angeles officials approved a Fire Department (LAFD) plan to use drones, making it one of the first major metropolitan fire departments with a significant drone program, reports My News LA.

The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation has offered to fund the program’s operating costs.
