We canít control birds but we can reduce the risk of drones by educating people not to fly in our Fire Areas during active operations.

The birds tend to stick ahead of the fire chasing small insects and wildlife.
You sort of have an idea where they are.
Drone operators will be filming the action and probably getting in the way.

Youíve not been involved with aerial fire fighting?
