The advantages of a bird’s eye view

Drone technology is revolutionising many aspects of modern life and fire scene examination is no exception. GKA Investigations Group have invested in a Mavic 2 Pro that will be used to enhance examinations and make them safer.

A damage assessment can be made very quickly by flying a drone over the entire site.

It is a bird’s eye view that allows the scene examiner to review a large area and get a complete picture of burn patterns and likely fire origin points.

The drone will also be used to keep fire examiners safe. An assessment can be carried out by the drone operator to see which parts of the site are safe to enter.
