Fire Department Receives Donation to Purchase a Drone

A donation from the Terra Cotta Cookie Co. will provide a portion of the necessary funds for the purchase of a specialized drone for the Halton Hills Fire Department. The drone will be used at emergency incidents such as fires and search and rescue situations as well as occurrences where aerial viewpoints are required. It will be an invaluable source of information-gathering for fire investigators and fire suppression staff to identify hot spots, fire origin and cause, and property loss. Town staff will authorize the purchase of a DJI Matrice 210 V2 drone from a budget of $56,072.81, including the donation amount.
