Italy, fires in the thermal imaging cameras of Fire Brigade drones / VIDEO
Year after year, drones are becoming more and more useful to those who have to deal with emergencies: the thermal imaging cameras of the Fire Brigade narrate in a video all the work our firefighters have had to cope with
Versilia, the thermal cameras of the Fire Brigade’s drones narrate the front line of interventions
Fires that have been raging for weeks, and which the Fire Brigade and Civil Defence volunteers have struggled to resolve.
On the Vigilidelfuoco.tv website, videos and images taken with the drones used in the fire monitoring operations and, following the containment and extinguishing of the flames, in the mapping of the affected areas have been made available.
Particularly striking are the images taken at night by the drone equipped with a thermal imaging camera, useful for understanding even in conditions of poor visibility the areas where the fires threatened to spread.
The video refers to the fire containment operations that took place in recent weeks in the area between Fibialla, Gualdo, Valpromaro and Piazzano (hamlets in the municipality of Camaiore, in the province of Lucca).
Initially flaring up in the area of Massarosa, the fire in Versilia then spread to the neighbouring localities of the municipality of Camaiore, creeping even to the border of the municipality of Lucca.
Overall, more than 1,000 people were evacuated for safety reasons and hundreds of hectares of forest went up in smoke.
