WHAT: Official donation of the "Phantom 4 Quadcopter" drone by Westside Stone, LLC
WHEN: Friday, November 17th at 10:30 am.
WHERE: Museum of the Springfield Fire Department Headquarters, inside Historic City Hall located at 830 Boonville Ave.
DETAILS: In November 2015, the Springfield Fire Department responded to an incident at Westside Stone Facility. During the response planning of the incident, it became apparent that an aerial based platform would be more effective as compared to the Department's ground based platforms. Following the incident, Scott Crabtree of Westside Stone offered to donate a drone to the Springfield Fire Department. The value of the drone is approximately $1,200 and will be used primarily by the SFD Bomb Squad or in support of special operations such as flood rescue and hazardous materials incidents. Springfield City Council authorized the Department to accept the donation during its October 30th meeting. During the presentation, Mr. Crabtree will be on hand to officially present the drone to members of the Springfield Fire Department.
