Public Safety: Fire Fighting Drones

Keep fires at bay and lives safe

with airborne intelligence

Gain situational awareness over fast moving blazes

Gather aerial intelligence, coordinate emergency response, and keep your crews safer. Enhance your sight through blinding smoke using Skydio thermal drones for both wild land and urban fires.

In forests, locate burn spots to build the best possible containment plan and prevent your teams from getting surrounded. In buildings, quickly check for people, locate exits, and verify hotspots before venting. Skydio makes it easy, navigating easily around trees, power lines, and in tight spaces, giving you unparalleled visibility over emergent hazards.
