With the continuous development of social economy and firefighting rescue technology, multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become an indispensable part of firefighting rescue. Faced with the occurrence of various types of disasters, there is a higher demand for the application of multi-rotor UAVs in firefighting rescue. They can improve the work efficiency of pre-scanning, assisting rescue decision-making, loudspeaker illumination, daily inspections, and special environment operations for firefighting rescue teams. Based on the current deployment of UAVs in the Jiaxing Firefighting Rescue Brigade and a comprehensive large-scale practical exercise, the author summarizes the common applications of multi-rotor UAVs in the field of firefighting, analyzes the problems encountered in the practical application of firefighting and rescue operations, and provides suggestions for improvement and optimization to enhance the efficiency of multi-rotor UAVs in firefighting rescue.
