I always had a wish to upgrade and accelerate the figth against a fire. In my country every summer we have many fires that burn large areas specially in windy days. Many times these fires are close to the sea and can be to areas difficult to approach. So it is ideal to use a drone for firefigthing (obviously no humans are subjected to danger) specially for areas where we take advantage of the water of the sea or lake. Also a drone can easily approach areas where people and vehicles cannot approach. Another advantage of using water from the sea is that the water supply is unstoppable. Imagine to have the possibility from a safe distance to drive a drone close to a fire, to install the mechanism for the water suplly automatically and start the figth. I believe it can be realized, my only concern is the wind.
