West Bengal fire services department is contemplating to procure drones after acquiring four robots as a better firefighting gear, state minister Sujit Bose said on Friday.

These four robots would be used in situations where it is too dangerous for fire brigade personnel to venture or in places not accessible to them. West Bengal is the only state that has four such robots. Now, the department is planning to introduce drones.
