From the Eastham Fire Department:

Eastham Fire Department will soon have the use of a Drone thanks to the generous donation from Richard and Patricia Ryder and the Eastham Firefighters Association!

This valuable resource will help start a program that will provide quicker response to offshore calls as well as for missing persons and hazardous materials incidents without unnecessarily putting personnel in harms way!

This will be a regional asset for the lower cape as well. Hopefully, with future funding, we will be able to enhance our drone fleet with additional aircraft and qualified pilots!
