The robotic revolution has reached Luxembourg City’s fire and ambulance service, which has been using drones in its operations for the past two years.
According to a city spokesperson, the emergency service acquired an unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, in 2015 at a cost of €7,000.
“The use of the drone makes it easier to coordinate fire and ambulance operations because it allows the Service's control center to have an overview of the situation,” the spokesperson told Delano on 11 October.
Altogether some 12 employees of the “Service incendie et ambulances” have been trained to handle the drone correctly and safely during operations.
