Bakersfield Fire Department Drone Tracked Wayward Fireworks

As reported in The Bakersfield Californian, when a group of firefighters heard the telltale whiz of an illegal firework followed by a trail of smoke, they were quick to deploy LOIS.  The drone cost the fire department roughly $1,000, so the first citation payed off the cost of the drone. The report suggested that this last weekend, the department earned enough in citations to purchase a minor fleet.
