A pair of Korean companies is showing what their technology can do to help local firefighters.
HoyaRobot and DRB have built robots used to fight fires.
HoyaRobot’s device is a small one that uses a camera to help find people trapped in a burning building. DRB’s is designed to go into a blaze and spray water to reduce the risk for firefighters.
Lafayette Fire Chief Richard Doyle says the technology has great potential for the department in the future, particularly to fight larger fires.
