First responders from the Menlo Park Fire District, based in the technology hotbed of Silicon Valley, are pioneering the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to better and more quickly access and fight fires and save lives.

Since 2014, the department has developed expertise that could someday make drones an essential tool for every fire department.
