Drones are becoming more common as a tool. The Coral Springs/Parkland Fire Department has two drones, a Phantom 3 and a Inspire 1. Both are used to give the fire fighters a better view of fire and emergency situations.

“They give us a better view of a house or business that is on fire. We can see things from the air that we can’t see from the ground,” said Mike Moser, Division chief for the Fire Department.

The Communications and Marketing Department also uses drones for various projects. The Police Department may buy drones to use them to locate missing people.
