The Melbourne Fire Brigade has been using Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for nearly 10 years, during which time there have been significant changes to the technology, the legislation and the regulation of remotely piloted aircraft. The MFB’s RPAS unit has been deployed all over Victoria assisting agencies in gathering intelligence at many different types of incidents and emergencies. This session will consider the journey the MFB has been on to get to where they are today with remotely piloted systems and look at some of the incidents attended and how they were able to assist.
