Fire service vehicles in the Netherlands will be getting the latest aerial thermal imaging tool thanks to a new strategic partnership between Fotokite and VTN Veiligheidstechniek Nederland (incl. BMT Fire & Rescue), Netherland’s leading fire equipment provider and fire service vehicle manufacturer. Dutch domestic Fire & Police services will now be ready for instant deployment and one-button operation with the Fotokite Sigma.
Cooperation between the two companies will be directed towards equipping every public safety team in the Netherlands with better situational awareness. Fotokite focuses on helping first responder teams manage complex, safety-critical situations, thereby aiding in protecting life and preserving property. Fotokite situational awareness tools integrated into BMT Fire & Rescue fire service vehicles will provide valuable aerial thermal imaging overviews of emergency response scenes without the safety concerns and operational challenges of traditional drones.
Fotokite’s self-piloting and actively tethered UAS enables fire brigades to focus on their missions rather than spending precious team resources on piloting or changing batteries. For more demanding environments, Fotokite Sigma’s IP55 rating ensures reliability in every environmental condition. Fotokites are operated regularly in rainy and windy weather conditions, which are native to the Netherlands. If you are interested in hearing more about the Fotokite and VTN (incl. BMT Fire & Rescue) partnership, please reach out to Fotokite and or VTN via their official websites.
